Exploring Concepts through Authentic Data Models

**Speakers**

Learn how authentic data collection and analysis allows us to engage students with the Standards for Mathematical Practice, especially “Model with Mathematics” and “Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others”. Wading through messy data allows students to process and make sense of mathematical concepts and tools we need them to learn through interesting contexts. We’ll share activities used from our Algebra II, AP Statistics and Calculus classes, and share how can you incorporate data collection and analysis to your lessons to increase student engagement and understanding.

Making Algebra 3-D Real

One major purpose of Algebra is to develop functions that explain, model, and solve real life situations. Participants will be involved in 3-D situations encouraging students to pose questions and then determine answers by manipulating variables, recording data, forming graphs, and developing functions. 3_D situations will include ‘The Walk’, ‘Spring has Sprung’, ‘Fish Pond’, ‘Bungee Barbie’, and ‘Race Car’.
