Reasoning with Data: Research on Students’ Data Explorations

April 13, 2022 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Franziska Peterson will be speaking in the colloquium for the Department of Mathematics and Statistics on Wednesday, April 13 at 3 p.m. in the Hill Auditorium of Barrows Hall. Her talk is titled “Reasoning with Data: Research on Students’ Data Explorations”: Students need to develop a unique set of data literacy and reasoning skills to work with real-world data, make decisions about constructing evidence to support a claim about their data, and interpret a vast variety of graphs and quantitative information. These skills are interdisciplinary and draw from mathematics, statistics, science practices, language, and technology, to name a few. In this talk, Peterson will explore student data exploration examples, including students’ graph constructions, their reasoning about their evidence to support a claim, and discuss the challenges that students need to overcome.
