STREAM: Describing Data (4-7)

This 3-week module explores how data and statistics concepts are developed in grades 4 through 7. Participants will: gain familiarity with the data and statistics standards and learning progressions; identify statistical vs. non-statistical questions and scenarios; learn how to select appropriate representations for data and appropriate statistical measure to describe a data set; practice data analysis and statistical summary on a real data set drawn from an elementary school setting.

Formative Assessment With Google Forms

Google Forms serve as a digital means for collecting all kinds of data and processing it in a way that makes it easier to measure growth, change, etc… The goal of this course is to facilitate the use of these tools to help promote success for teachers, and most importantly students. This course is designed to take you through the process of creating several different types of forms, collecting results, and manipulating data into usable reports. The course will consist of online modules based on topics. Participants will be engaged in learning about the many different aspects of Google Forms and how they can be implemented within their school. Participants taking the course for credit will be required to complete all modules. This course is intended for multiple audiences.

*NEW! Non-Facilitated Module: Fraction Models and Operations (3-5)
JANUARY 22 – FEBRUARY 9
This 3-week non-facilitated module (see end of document for details) examines learning progressions and models related to operations on fractions. Another module, Developing Fraction Concepts 3-5, explores the meaning of “fraction” and fundamental concepts of equivalence and comparison. This module goes a step further to examine conceptual understanding of fraction operations and the models used to develop these concepts. Specific goals and activities include the following:
 Examine different types of conceptual models used to represent fraction operations.
 Discover how learning progression guide students’ developing knowledge of fraction operations in grades 3-5.
 Explore and apply fraction operations in real world contexts.
Registration will open on January 1, 2018 and close on January 22, 2018.

Measurement (K-3)
This 3-week module primarily focuses on measurement, the K-3 learning progressions related to measurement, and foundational ideas that promote deeper understanding of measurement concepts. Specific goals and activities include the following:
● Develop enduring understandings of measurement attributes, processes, and tools.
● Explore relationships among units, attributes, and measures within a system of measurement.
● Engage in authentic problem-solving using tools that can be applied in the classroom.

Describing Data (4-7)
JANUARY 22 – FEBRUARY 9
This 3-week module explores how data and statistics concepts are developed in grades 4 through 7. Specific goals and activities include the following:
Standards-Based Teaching
Renewing Educators Across Montana
Gain familiarity with the data and statistics standards and learning progressions.
● Identify statistical vs. non-statistical questions and scenarios.
● Learn how to select appropriate representations for data and appropriate statistical measure to describe a data set.
● Practice data analysis and statistical summary on a real data set drawn from an elementary school setting.
Registration will open on January 1, 2018 and close on January 22, 2018.

Statistics: Inferences (HS)
JANUARY 22 – FEBRUARY 9
Statistics and Probability do not appear as stand-alone topics in Montana’s Common Core State Standards. These concepts are dispersed throughout all high school mathematics courses with an emphasis on informed decision making. The power of statistics and probability to understand the world we live in is some of the most applicable knowledge students can acquire in our classrooms. Specific goals and activities include for this 3-week module include:
● Understand how key concepts in statistics and probability develop along a learning progression.
● Discover how knowledge of statistics and probability leads into making inferences, predictions, and decisions.
● Explore how mathematical modeling enhances teaching probability and statistics – or do statistics and probability enhance the teaching of modeling?

Registration will open on January 1, 2018 and close on January 22, 2018.
