AUTHOR PRESENTATIONS

Friday, April 11

Rethinking Probability in the Common Core and AP® Statistics
Presented by Roxy Peck
9:30 AM–10:30 AM
Great Hall B/C (Convention Center)

An alternate research-based approach to teaching the probability content in the CC and in AP® Statistics will be explored. Participants will engage in activities suitable for classroom use, as probability information is translated into natural frequencies in a way that allows students to reason about probability in a sophisticated way without formulas.

Presentation Format: 9–12 Session
Grade Band Audience: 6 to 8, 9 to 12


Advanced Algebra with Financial Applications: A Third/Fourth Year Math Option
Presented by Richard Sgroi and Robert Gerver
3:30 PM–4:30 PM
242 (Convention Center)

Advanced Algebra with Financial Applications is a substantive Common Core–aligned modeling course that teaches and uses advanced algebra in the content areas of investments, creating a business, banking, credit, automobiles, employment, taxes, home ownership, retirement, and budgeting. In this presentation about the course, sample curriculum materials will be distributed and explored.

Presentation Format: 9–12 Session
Grade Band Audience: 9 to 12
