In this 1.5 hr. workshop participants will use an example data set from a Data Nuggets experiment to explore different methods of depicting the same set of numbers in several different ways. We will focus this session on defining the relationship between the research question and the choice of how and what is represented on a graph. This workshop is essential for teachers who are guiding their students to choose the correct data from a large data set with many variables. As a participant you will be guided through activities you can use with your students in either a synchronous or asynchronous teaching platform. All activities in this workshop will be focused on helping students determine the most appropriate type of graph for their data using a repeatable method.
Although the examples in this workshop will be based in math and science, this 1.5-hour workshop is open to teachers of all grade levels and subject areas.
