It's a Home Run! Using Mathematical Discourse to Support the Learning of Statistics

Kathleen Himmelberger, Daniel Schwartz 

November 2007, Volume 101, Issue 4, Page 250

Abstract:
Examples of how to encourage productive mathematical discourse in a classroom, using group work and discussion to develop a deeper understanding of mathematical topics and preparing them for greater learning experiences. Examples from a unit on variability show that students gain long-lasting insight into the structure and purpose of statistical formulas. The activity sheet for the discussed example is included, along with sample student work.
