Supporting Teacher Change: A Case from Statistics
McClain, Kay
International Group for the Psychology of Mathematics Education, Paper presented at the 27th International Group for the Psychology of Mathematics Education Conference Held Jointly with the 25th PME-NA Conference (Honolulu, HI, Jul 13-18, 2003), v3 p253-260
This paper provides an analysis of a teacher development experiment (cf. Simon, 2000) designed to support teachers' understandings of statistical data analysis. The experiment was conducted as part of collaborative efforts between the author and a cohort of middle-school mathematics teachers during the 2000-2001 academic year. Analysis of the episodes in this paper document the evolution of the teachers' understandings as they participated in activities from an instructional sequence designed to support conceptual understanding of statistical data analysis. In this process, I highlight the mathematical issues that emerged as the teachers worked to further their own understandings. (Contains 1 footnote and 3 figures.)
