How Likely …? Sampling Distributions and the Central Limit Theorem
Speakers: Diane Broberg, Jeff McCalla
Technology Proficiency Level: All
Many statistical investigations revolve around the question “How likely could this event occur by chance?” Understanding patterns in sampling distributions of sampling means and in particular the Central Limit Theorem can help students answer this question in many contexts. TI technology can be a powerful tool to help students see and interact with these patterns.

In this webinar, presenters will:
  • Show how to create and display sampling distributions of sample means
  • Use activities that help students discover patterns in sampling distributions of sample means
  • Demonstrate TI technology tools that calculate probabilities involving normal distributions
  • Discuss related AP* questions
Presenters will utilize both TI-84 Plus CE and TI-Nspire™ handheld devices during the webinar.

How Likely …? Two-Way Tables and Chi-Squared Distributions
Speakers: Ray Barton, Landy Godbold
Technology Proficiency Level: All
Many statistical investigations revolve around the question, “How likely could this event occur by chance?” Two-way tables, graphical representations and chi-squared distributions can help students answer this question in many contexts. TI technology can be a powerful tool to help students see and interact with these concepts.

In this webinar, presenters will:
  • Show how to create interactive two-way tables and their associated bar graphs
  • Use these interactive tables and graphs to help students understand conditional probabilities
  • Demonstrate technology tools that calculate probabilities involving chi-squared distributions
  • Discuss related AP* questions
Presenters will utilize both TI-84 Plus CE and TI-Nspire™ handheld devices during the webinar.

Three Dimensional Science Teaching and Learning
Speakers: Peter McLaren, Jeff Lukens
Technology Proficiency Level: All
With over 40 states adopting or developing three-dimensional state science educational standards based upon “A Framework for K–12 Science Education,” (National Research Council, 2012), the way science is taught and learned in our country is shifting significantly.

Webinar presenters will discuss how TI is working with educators to adapt traditional lessons by integrating the three dimensions to support students as they strive to explain phenomena and design solutions to problems.

This webinar will share with educators how they can use a "coaching template" to target evidence that educators would look for as students make their thinking visible through the science and engineering practices and crosscutting concepts.
