Sponsored by the Office of Catholic Education and the Office of Nonpublic Federal Programs, School District of Philadelphia What: Data Analysis and Statistics Institute is a week-long professional development program for secondary mathematics teachers using the TI-84 Plus Silver Edition to integrate statistics and data analysis instruction across the mathematics curriculum in the spirit of the NCTM Curriculum, Teaching, and Assessment Standards for School Mathematics. All topics, which are necessary for a firm foundation upon which Advanced Placement Statistics will build, will be addressed through handson activities. Topics include: Univariate and Bivariate Data, Least Squares Line, Probability, Simulations, and Inference. Archbishop Ryan High School, N102 August 31 to September 4, 2009 (8 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.)

Student Objectives: To acquire a firm foundation upon which AP Statistics will build. (There is no charge for Sister Alice’s students as they will render service instead.) Teacher Objectives: • To enhance understanding of statistics. (If you feel insecure with the content matter, you will be rid of that insecurity by the end of the institute.) • To develop teaching strategies and resource materials, which facilitate the incorporation of statistics across the mathematics curriculum. • To experience significant problem situations which take advantage of the use of technology as a tool for learning mathematics. • To learn how to use the statistical capabilities of the TI-84 appropriately in your classroom. Credit: Thirty hours of Continuing Professional Education credit will be offered to those who participate in and complete the institute. Participants are expected to brown-bag their own snacks and lunch attend the entire workshop bring a sweater in case the air-conditioning is cooler than you prefer bring your own TI-83-84 unless your school qualifies for the bonus below
