Join MoMath's Chief of Mathematics Nick Rauh and 2014 Rosenthal Prize winner Ralph Pantozzi for a two-part workshop featuring activities that explore probability through the lens of experimentation.  In the morning, focus on the use of simulations to model populations, random data, and counterintuitive puzzles while participating in an engaging mathematical discussion.  In the afternoon, experience an activity on random walks and a discussion of the elegant mathematics behind them.  These activities will touch on many of the points outlined in the Common Core standards for teaching probability and statistics.

This workshop is recommended for middle school and early high school teachers, or for anyone who just wants to see a different side of statistics.  Please note that payment cannot be made via purchase order.

Registration will close at 5:15 pm on November 2.  Walk-ins welcome on November 3, for an additional fee of $15 ($170 total).
