Exchanging pedagogy between post-secondary and secondary school statistics courses: facilitating meaningful professional development
- Josh Tabor (Canyon del Oro High School, United States)
With the implementation of the Common Core State Standards in the United States, all teachers of mathematics in grades 6–12 will also be teachers of statistics. College faculty should play an important role in developing the statistical content knowledge of these teachers, as well as teachers of AP Statistics. Successful examples of professional development for K–12 teachers will be highlighted and future opportunities will be discussed.
