Developing statistical literacy through student engagement and teacher collaboration: Implications from scientific research.
Mauren Porciúncula ,Federal University of Rio Grande – FURG


Reasoning, thinking and statistical literacy are important skills for exercising social justice and citizenship. We all use statistics, in diverse ways. Being able to reason with and about statistics is essential for our students to be literate members of society. In this presentation, we will explore ways to collaborate with teachers to promote the learning of statistics, for children, young people or adults. Our focus will be based on research, to support teaching.


Dr. Mauren Porciúncula is an Associate Professor at the Federal University of Rio Grande – FURG, where she works with Undergraduate, Postgraduate, Research and Extension Education in Statistical Education. She is a Scholar in Productivity and Technological Development and Innovative Extension – DT/CNPq and Leader of the Research Group on Statistical Education – EduEst and of the International Interdisciplinary Research Group on Statistical Education – GIIPEE/FURG/CNPq. She was the creator and is responsible for the Innovation Center of Statistical Education – ICE, based at the Institute of Mathematics, Statistics and Physics – IMEF/FURG, which brings together the Laboratory of Cognitive Studies and Technologies in Statistical Education – LabEst, the Statistics Learning Room – SalAEst, finalist for the Murilo Marques award from Fundação Carlos Chagas (2017), and the Statistical Multimedia Literacy Extension Program – LeME, winner of the Best Cooperative Project Award, from the International Association for Statistical Education – IASE/ISI (2019). The researcher is also responsible for the Collaborative Group for Training Teachers in Statistical Education – MoSaiCo Edu, and the Technological Support for a Playful and Interactive Statistical Education – ATELIE, in addition to other associated projects. She is a member of the Brazilian Association of Statistical Education – ABE, Statistical Education Group of Brazilian Society of Mathematics Education – SBEM, the Latin American Network for Research in Statistical Education – RELIEE and the International Association for Statistical Education – IASE. Since 2015, she is the Country Coordinator of the International Statistical Literacy Project – ISLP in Brazil, and she acts as the Associate Editor of Statistical Education Research Journal – SERJ.


What you say matters . Maria Sevao, Ako Mātātu | Teach First

We often as teachers wonder how we can gauge if we are being an effective teacher. Often we want to check that and uphold that. A tool to support your own development that could also support the growth of your team to implement effective teaching is the actions found within Teaching to the North East. This session will take you through Russell Bishop’s actions in Teaching to the North East as a tool to apply to yourself and your team. 

As we mentored beginning teachers we realised upon exploring this model that this isn’t just for beginning teachers, if anything, it’s our gauge to see we are North East Teachers (North East refers to the interface of high interactions (North) and highly relational (East)).

Maria Sevao currently works in Initial Teacher Education, nurturing beginner teachers at Ako Mātātupu, Teach First NZ.  She has held various positions in tertiary and secondary schools; Dean, Kahui Ako (Col) and curriculum, but most importantly a classroom teacher. 




Session 2 


What is dataing? Dr Pip Arnold, Karekare Education

Pip attended the SRTL conference in Brisbane in late June where dataing was the focus of the week long conference.
Join Pip to hear about her ideas on dataing and how the PPD elements of the PPDAC cycle are as important as the AC elements.


Engendering a Love for Maths; a deeper dive : Brad Bridges, St Peters College, Auckland

This session both builds on Brads last session and stands alone as he takes a deeper dive into how at St Peters they changed the culture in their  year 9 & 10 maths classrooms. The practices and approaches used in year 9 and 10 are applicable across the year levels.

Resource for session

Brad started teaching Technology in 2010 and switched to teaching Maths in 2015. He has always been interested in the science of learning and how to teach students to become better learners. He spent 2 – 3 years researching, developing, and testing the elements of the Junior Maths program and implemented it this year for Year’s 9 and 10 students at St Peter’s College. Brad received a Kalman award for this work.


Mathematics Teaching Prizes, Scholarships, Fellowships and funding for study.

Caroline Yoon and Ofer Marmur, The University of Auckland


Do you know someone (perhaps yourself) who deserves a $5000 prize for their maths and stats teaching? Curious about postgrad study, but don’t know where to start? This workshop describes exciting opportunities for NZ maths and stats teachers, such as cash prizes for teaching excellence, and fellowships that pay teachers to study, as well as paying course fees. We will discuss application details for the Kalman Teacher Prizes, Kalman Teacher Fellowships, Teach NZ study awards, support grants, sabbaticals, and more. We will also share details on postgrad courses specifically designed for NZ maths and stats teachers.

Maths week | Pāngarau wiki: Shane Barr

Get a sneak preview of the topics, and activities for this year, as well as some tips about how to use maths week to celebrate maths in your community.



Shane has been working with gifted and talented students and extending their learning in mathematics for more than 15 years at Year 7-8. Shane’s commitment to giving back to the mathematics community is shown through his involvement with the Canterbury Mathematical Association as a member of their executive since 2017. This has led to his organising and leading professional development for teachers in Years 7-10, helping to run the local Cantamath competition, and most recently a member of the team who create Maths Week.


The educational benefits of  Kenken puzzles in the classroom. Dr Mala Nataraj

Years 4-13

KenKen puzzles are a unique form of logic puzzles that have become increasingly popular in recent years. KenKen promote reasoning, arithmetic and problem solving skills and communication in the classroom. When working on KenKen together, students enhance their ability to discuss, reason and explain their methods. The puzzles are fun way to practice basic number facts and help develop confidence and perseverance. In this session, Mala will demonstrate how KenKen can be introduced to learners and will make connections to the Refreshed Curriculum. There will be time for participants to discuss benefits for students. It would be helpful if you are able to print the pdf of KenKen puzzles which will be used for the session. Mala will look forward to seeing you!.

Simmer: a CODAP plugin that uses block programming to simulate probability experiments. Tim Erickson, eeps media

In this session Tim will introduce Simmer, a CODAP plugin that uses block code to simulate probability experiments and  and other things.

CODAP is a free tool that allows students to explore and tell stories using data.




Tim Erickson has been developing data analysis and modeling technology and curriculum for schools for decades. He is one of the designers of CODAP and Fathom, and currently works to create web-based tools for data analysis and visualization, especially in the form of CODAP plugins. He frequently presents to teachers across the US and internationally. Before all this technology, he created materials for cooperative learning, including the books Get It Together and United We Solve. He also plays the cello (poorly), tries to walk 10000 steps a day, and makes really delicious pancakes and granola.
