Pip ArnoldCognition Education
What is the story? Being a data detective.

Contextual knowledge falls into four broad categories. General knowledge, knowledge specific to the given context, knowledge of everyday language and statistical knowledge. Contextual knowledge is part of the story, but without it we are unable to pose sensible investigative questions, predict what we think the data might show us, decide on how we will display the data, and decide if our conclusions make sense. As Moore (1990, p.96) says “Data are not merely numbers, but numbers with a context.” How do we as teachers build students’ contextual knowledge to help them become better data detectives and enable them to tell the story?

In this presentation Pip will share with you experiences, findings, and ideas based on her PhD research on posing investigative questions and the TLRI project - Building students’ inferential reasoning: statistics curriculum Levels 5 and 6, with a view to building students’ contextual knowledge.

10:00 – 11:00am Workshop 1:
1ALouise Addison – McAuley High School
Teaching as Inquiry in Mathematics

This workshop will look at my use of teaching as inquiry with my Year 11 mathematics class and share what the evidence shows has worked to enhance student learning (and what hasn’t!) in this new course this year.

1B Lindsay Smith – University of Auckland
Census At School

In this workshop we will explore the Census At School website. Become familiar with the sampling and analysis tools, learn how you and your students can easily calculate statistics and construct graphs and two way tables to be used as a teaching resource or for assessment.

Numeracy Unit Standards

Looking at how schools are implementing the New Numeracy Standards. I will be sharing resources that Palmerston North Girls’ High School has used to implement the standards. I will also be discussing ideas for collecting evidence for the numeracy standards based on the numeracy unit standards workshop I attended recently. From these, I will also talk about how my school intends to implement the numeracy standards next year.

Algebra Grids/Optimisation?
Kylie Jenkinson – James Cook High School
Sunshine College share

Kylie and Conrad will share with you some of the wonderful things they found at NZAMT in Dunedin.

2C Marion Steel – Epsom Girls Grammar School
Games for numeracy and strategy

Come and play some classroom-tested games which encourage mathematical thinking. I will share some favourite games, some old, some newish, to engage students while they learn. I will cover games for the last minute of a lesson as well as games that get students really thinking about strategy.
