Workshop 09

Tuesday, May 5:  3:45 PM – 4:45 PM

Workshop Description: Visualizing Numbers

Participants take a statistic and present their data visually in creative ways, helping students connect with otherwise abstract numbers. Free, multi-platform tools will be used in this hands-on session. Given a range of relevant statistical data sets, teachers will use some free and easy to use tools to create mosaics that visually represent the importance of the data found. Participants will share the mosaics and the math behind each in an Internet forum/dropbox created for this event. Link to Google Docs site: http://docs.google.com/Doc?id=dd97jf9d_50hmmn9mdx

Two highly talented and energetic trainers that have been in the business of rocking teachers’ worlds with fun, exciting and educationally challenging ideas for the last four years.
