Class Notes

Course Description

This is the third of four courses in the K-5 Math Endorsement; an optional program for educators who choose to strengthen and enhance their current competency levels.    Data analysis permeates our lives; therefore it is essential for students to develop an innate understanding and appreciation of data analysis.  For teachers to develop a strong understanding of the Data Analysis and Probability domain in students, they must have a deep understanding of the pedagogical content knowledge with respect to this domain.  Pedagogical content knowledge goes beyond simply being able to answer problems correctly; it is the intersection of content and pedagogy.  Having pedagogical content knowledge means teachers know how to represent concepts, assess what prior knowledge and misconceptions each student brings to a given learning situation, and know how to address these through meaningful facilitation techniques.
