ESTEEM: Enhancing Statistics Teacher Education with E- Modules
The Enhancing Statistics Teacher Education with E-Modules (ESTEEM) project will facilitate the infusion of statistics content and pedagogy into undergraduate mathematics teacher preparation by providing faculty with technological and curricular resources, networking experiences, and ongoing support. The ESTEEM project will address recent trends in secondary education and teacher preparation, including: 1) use of dynamic statistics tools to analyze data; 2) a shift to mobile technology which has caused schools to favor online software requiring no installation; and 3) the rapid expansion of online and hybrid courses in higher education. As a result of the ESTEEM project, preservice secondary mathematics teachers (PSMTs) will be better equipped to teach statistics with online tools. This will lead to stronger preparation of grades 6-12 students in statistics and data literacy, and feed the pipeline into data intensive STEM disciplines.
