Multivariable thinking in algebra-based second courses

Beth Chance (Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo), Karen McGaughey (Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo), Nathan Tintle (Dordt College)


In this workshop we will share recent thinking and curricular content to promote multivariable thinking with students in algebra-based second courses in statistics using visualizations, conceptualizations of sources of variability and simulation-based methods. The workshop will be a mix of both conceptual discussion and hands-on examples of classroom focused activities including with visual and computer-based illustrations and simulation. Ample time will be spent with panelists responding to and discussing participants questions.
