Tuesday, January 21st, 20143:30 pm – 4:00 pm ET

Presented by: Jennifer L. Green, Montana State University and Erin E. Blankenship, University of Nebraska-Lincoln


We developed an introductory statistics course for pre-service elementary teachers. In this webinar, we will describe the goals and structure of the course, as well as the assessments we implemented. Overall, the course aims to help pre-service teachers recognize the importance of statistics in the elementary curriculum, as well as the integral role they, as teachers, can play in a student's entire statistical education.
