The Statistics Modules are designed to develop deep understanding of both statistics and teaching statistics. Users of the materials will focus on study design, exploratory data analysis, inference, and quantitative and categorical association as they develop this understanding. Attention is given to developing an understanding of equitable teaching practices and equity issues in education. Opportunities to develop understanding of both content knowledge and content knowledge for teaching occur through a balance of tasks that explore: a) the statistical concepts themselves AND b) common student conceptions, responding to student work, constructing lessons that use key ideas, and analyzing standards, and c) considering how to use statistics to empower action for social change.

I learned how to understand other people’s statistical explanations and help them build on their thinking. This was really helpful as I can apply these communication skills to my other classes and to my future teaching.Preservice Teacher
My students really were motivated by the social justice slant to these problems. It increased their level of engagement and discussion. Because they were interested in the social justice aspect of the problems, they were more interested in the mathematics that would help them with the problem.MODULE(s2) Instructor
