We’ve been busy tapping away on Creating Data Literate Students, a guide to integrate the “reading” and “writing” of data.
- How do students learn to “read” and “write” data with accuracy?
- Given how jam-packed high school curriculum is, it isn’t practical for teachers to add a unit or course on data or statistical literacy to the curriculum. What are the tips, rules of thumb, and guidelines that would make the greatest impact in the limited time available?
Our chapters are now available for you to read and download, and by the end of Summer 2017, we’ll have copies available to purchase on Amazon or download in a machine-readable format, too. Stay tuned to find out how you can get your very own copy!
