Statistics in the STEM Classroom
I will be participating in the upcoming webinar Statistics in the STEM Classroom, hosted by the National Museum of Mathematics. During the webinar I’ll present a lesson I developed as part of a joint program between MoMath and the Brookhaven National Laboratory.
This summer a small group of math and physics teachers attended workshops with Dr. Allen Mincer, a particle physicist from NYU. Dr. Mincer discussed the mathematics, statistics, and physics involved in the development and operation of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), the world’s largest particle accelerator. Teachers were then tasked with developing classroom lessons inspired by Dr. Mincer’s workshops.
The lessons will be shared during these MoMath workshops, the first of which is Monday, December 9th. The workshops are open to the public, and are free for New York State Master Teachers. You can find out more about the webinar and register here.
