One of the goals of the American Statistical Association (ASA) is to improve
statistics education at all levels. Through the STatistics Education Web
(STEW), the ASA is reaching out to K-12 mathematics and science
teachers who teach statistics concepts in their classrooms. STEW is an
online resource for peer-reviewed lesson plans for K-12 teachers. The web site is maintained by the ASA and accessible to K-12 teachers throughout the world.
Guidelines for Professional Development Using Publications
NCTM school journals and other publications are a rich resource for professional development. Reflection Guides are written by members of NCTM's Professional Development Services Committee (PDSC).
Featured Reflection Guide - Representation
Paper Moon: Simulating a Total Solar Eclipse
Reflect on practice by exploring:
- How multiple representations can be used to enhance student learning and understanding of student learning
- How physical, tabular, graphical, verbal, and symbolic representations can be connected in a lesson
- Connections across the different strands of the curriculum—algebra, geometry, and trigonometry
- Connections among different subject areas—mathematics, astronomy, and science
- Use of spreadsheets/technology to analyze data
- Appropriate use of concrete models to explore mathematical ideas
- How instruction can incorporate student interactions and feedback
