Paper 9I2 (Wednesday 11th, 11:00-12:30)

Students' statistical modeling activities using TinkerPlots




Statistical modeling using technology is now an integral component of statistical thinking and identified as an important learning goal for K-12 and undergraduate statistics curriculum worldwide. Yet, the statistics education community has very little knowledge about the impact of such a focus on student learning. The goal of this research is to describe and compare the statistical modeling content knowledge of a small group of college students who received a reform-oriented curriculum focused on modeling and simulation using TinkerPlotsTM. The data reported here explores students’ development of statistical models using TinkerPlotsTM through their responses to questions set in the context of a statistical task. Implications for teaching and future research are also discussed.
