Introducing Your Students to Multivariable Data

This webinar will present a way to introduce students to data. The webinar will present two classroom lessons that can be used to explain multivariable data to your class. The first is called “A Lesson for the First Day,” and is used to show your students how data can be used to answer questions. The second is called “Using Google Spreadsheets,” and has your students collect data in the classroom. Both of these activities can be completed early in the course. The webinar will be on Friday, January 25 at noon EST, 11 am CST, 10 am MST, 9 am PST. Duration: 60 minutes.
