Developing E-Modules to Support Preservice Secondary Mathematics Teachers’ Statistical Thinking


  • Rick Hudson (University of Southern Indiana, United States)



High quality materials related to statistics content and pedagogy are needed for secondary mathematics teacher education. This paper will describe the design principles utilized by a multi-institutional team to develop online modules for preservice teachers focused on statistical thinking and tools for teaching statistical inquiry. Design principles that guided creation and development will be shared, including: 1) use of free and accessible tools, 2) connection to classroom practice, and 3) access and delivery online. The project’s role in further developments to CODAP, a free Common Online Data Analysis Platform, will be highlighted. Results of a pilot test implementing the first module will be shared.
