Exploring “What’s Typical?” Using Probability
Speakers: Tracy Watson, Don Worcester
Technology Proficiency Level: All
Many statistical investigations revolve around the question, “What’s typical?” Probability provides a way to measure how “typical” something is and provides a language for describing uncertainty. Sample space and event are “duals” of population and statistic. Formulas for combining random variables explain inference standard error formulas for differences.

Presenters will:
  • Relate key concepts of probability to corresponding concepts in statistics
  • Examine probability as a long-run measurement
  • Illustrate how technology can be used to determine probabilities through direct calculation and through simulations
  • Investigate calculation and interpretation of expected values
  • Discuss measures for random variables formed by combining other random variables
  • Relate each of these concepts to the AP* testing experience
Both TI-84 Plus and TI-Nspire™ technology are used.

Distribution and Simulation: Key Ideas in Statistical Reasoning
Speakers: Landy Godbold, Gail Burrill
Technology Proficiency Level: All
Mathematics educators in middle grades and high school face the tough task of incorporating elements of statistics into their curriculum. At its crux, statistics is all about variability, or noise.

Mathematics is a universal discipline that is applied in a multitude of careers, sports and hobbies. Yet, math is often viewed as a set of steps that should be memorized, rather than a language that is used to solve problems of all magnitudes. From finding the perfect angle at which to kick a soccer ball to make a goal, to calculating the rate at which a disease spreads through a population, math is essential to the decisions we make every day. As we are tasked with preparing students for college and careers, how might we inspire them to think differently about the math that can be used to explain their world and to solve problems?

This session will focus on empowering students to:
  • Tackle challenges using problem-solving skills and their TI technology
  • Evaluate, analyze and explain the math behind their favorite topics
