GK12 fellows, teachers and program leaders met on the RPI campus September 19th to kick off the 2015/2016 academic school year. Teacher/fellow pairs were able to collaborate on activities that they will use this year that support both the classroom and 3Helix program goals.
This year I will be partnering with Mike Justice to teach AP Statistics at Albany High School. Our goals with my component of the class are to illustrate the use and misuse of statistics in real life with an emphasis on its misuse in media (news, networked sources, etc.), promote a mindset of curiosity when one is presented statistics, and illustrate the importance of critical thinking.
