Empowering AP Statistics teachers: Free JMP workshops this summer
Jun 22, 2016 5:07 PM
For the fifth consecutive year, JMP is sponsoring AP Statistics teacher workshops during the summer break. These workshops are designed for those who want to employ data analysis software in their AP Stat course and who have taught the course at least twice.
Two sessions are offered this summer, at SAS offices in Irvine, CA, July 11-12 and in Arlington, VA, August 8-9. Limited seats are still available. The sessions are paid for by SAS and complimentary to qualified teachers on a first-come, first-served basis.
Sessions are led by AP Statistics leaders and textbook authors Daren Starnes and Chris Olsen, with instructional support by our very own Mia Stephens. The workshop will highlight the benefits of using software and strategies for teaching modern data-driven pedagogy. Attendees will get hands-on training with JMP Student Edition, along with lesson plans, course materials and a personal copy of JMP Student Edition software for Windows or Mac.
Past attendees of this workshop have found the practical, hands-on approach especially helpful in transitioning from calculators to computers. And if you know of a local AP Stat teacher who might be interested, please share this post with him or her.
