Training on Statistics for Teachers of Daan Sarile Integrated School in Cabanatuan City, Nueva Ecija, Philippines
- Genelyn Ma. Sarte (University of the Philippines Diliman, Philippines)
This paper will highlight the experiences and best practices to be gained from a pilot project aimed to train kindergarten to grade 10 teachers in a school outside of Metro Manila. The pilot is in response to the need to educate teachers in these grade levels on the basic concepts related to descriptive and inferential statistics, which should be integrated in subjects across kindergarten to grade 10. The senior level “Statistics and Probability” module starts with the topic of random variables and probability distributions and ends with correlation and regression analyses, hence the gap from kindergarten-grade 10 to grades 11-12 must be addressed. The long-term goal of the project is to bring the training to as many public schools as possible nationwide.
