Ryan Seth Jones will be talking about helping students understand variability. Here is a full description of the session. "

 Contact Info
 
 

Variability is everywhere! The answers to so many questions we ask about the world change all around us, so how can we say anything amidst all the changes? Unfortunately, in schools statistics are often treated like a set of procedures to apply to data. Blagh… However, it is possible to engage students with these ideas in a way that helps them struggle with the ubiquitous challenge of variability. In this session I will frame statistical work as modeling variability, discuss different kinds of variability and their implications for learning, and provide examples of how students can engage with variability, invent methods for describing variability, and in the process learn about how statistics tell us things about the world we would not know without them."

I downloaded Notebook 14 and decided that I wanted the previous version I had installed Notebook 12.  My tech guy said it would revert to Notebook 12 once the trial period was over, but it didn't.  I can't open any of my Notebook files.  Any recommendations on how I get Notebook version 12 back?

Thanks everyone!  We essentially had to reinstall from our disk and use a patch to fix things.  What a nightmare.  Luckily, we have an awesome tech guy.

Just got in the habit of using my finger to select everything, because I often draw geometry shapes I would find myself putting down the pen.  I know I could use the pen to click on the point/drag tool or drawing tools, but for some reason I would put the pen down and switching got annoying.
