An understanding of statistics is becoming increasingly important in our world, and as math and science teachers we have an opportunity to develop student competencies in this area. We'll look at ways to incorporate statistics and data analytics into curricular outcomes, explore available resources, and talk about how you and your students can analyze data with Python in Jupyter notebooks (for free) through the federally-funded Callysto project.
Enter to win a $50 Amazon gift card by completing an optional Callysto feedback survey (http://bit.ly/callysto-feedback) after attending this session!
