#AMAonline What’ s on?

Save the date. We are bringing you another  online morning of professional development


  • The Role of Questioning and Nontraditional Data Types, Christine Franklin : American Statistical Association (ASA) K-12 Statistical Ambassador
    This session highlights the role of questioning with two examples from the newly revised ASA Pre-K12 Guidelines for Assessment and Instruction in Statistics Education. These examples present younger students the opportunity to explore answering statistical investigative questions using nontraditional data types.
  • What are the Pacific values, and why and how are they important for our mathematics and statistics teaching?, Robin Averill : Te Herenga Waka Victoria University of Wellington

    Talofa lava! Kia orana! Bula vinaka! Very warm Pacific greetings! In this session we will explore key expectations of Tapasā: Cultural competencies framework for teachers of Pacific learners. We will consider how strong embodiment in our mathematics and statistics teaching of the fundamental Pacific values of Tapasā has the potential to enhance all learners’ engagement, wellbeing, and achievement. We will discuss differing perspectives of the values and ways we can recognise, exemplify, and nurture these through our mathematics and statistics teaching and interactions. Ideas shared in this session are drawn from an extensive research project involving interviews with teachers of Pacific and non-Pacific heritage and observations of their teaching.


These keynotes will set us up for another morning of learning, save the spot, Check back soon for more information and to register
