CSTEM 5108 Statistics and Probability

Statistics and Probability is a course designed by Lesley University Center for Mathematics Achievement which will focus on exploring the role of statistics and probability in mathematics and the world around us. This course focuses on the development of statistical models as outlined in the Common Core State Standards, strategies for interpreting data models, and examining probabilities of events. The course will develop the concepts using multiple representations and through problem solving. Individual and group problem solving tasks will permit students to observe, analyze, and contrast various representations and discuss the advantage of each. Each student will keep a learning log noting insights into his or her own understanding of statistics and probability and the various ways in which they might be represented. A portfolio will also be developed illustrating what each student learned.
