Data and Statistics

Heat Wave. This sample contextualized lesson focuses on using box-and-whisker charts to compare sets of data in the context of exploring climate change. The lesson includes a lesson plan and teacher materials as well as student materials/handouts. A companion ZIP file containing PowerPoint slides for the lesson is also provided. A version of this lesson, adapted for Level A students, is also available here.

Probability
  • Understanding Risk. This sample lesson provides a lesson that can be used in a math unit on probability, using the context of personal health risks and decisions.
  • Will It Rain Tomorrow? This sample contextualized lesson was designed as part of a science unit on weather, climate, and climate change, with the recognition that an understanding of basic probability and statistics is required to understand the scientific concepts. This lesson could also be used in a math unit on probability to provide a context for students to apply their math skills.

Curriculum Development Resources

  • Developing Instructional Units: Applying What Students Learn
  • Curriculum for Adults Learning Math (CALM) incorporates the CCRSAE content standards as well as the Standards for Mathematical Practice. It also clearly addresses the key instructional shifts: focus, coherence, and rigor. CALM does not include every single standard, but rather focuses on those key standards needed for adults to be successful math thinkers. CALM follows a coherent continuum that helps students developmentally progress through math topics by making connections among different math content. And, CALM addresses all three aspects of rigor: conceptual understanding, application, and procedural skill and fluency. Learn more about CALM and CALM support professional development at calm.terc.edu.
