Session 6

Probability and Statistics in Grades 6-11

Time: 1 hour and 30 minutes


This session will distinguish between mathematical and statistical thinking and explore the development of statistical thinking in the  content of Grades 6 – 11.  Because the CCLS statistics content is spread over multiple grades, it is important for teachers to understand the overarching themes that provide coherence to the statistics curriculum.  Examples from the lessons will be used to illustrate conceptual development across grades.
