ENSITE Multiplier Event in Utrecht
14. May @ 13:00 - 15. May @ 16:00
Should wind power plants be set-up everywhere? Should we forbid the use of drinking water for cleaning and gardening? This type of socio-scientific issues is receiving increasing attention in teacher education for STEM subjects. The use of mathematics plays an important role when exploring these issues. In particular the use of statistics to analyse the ‘big’ data involved, can help taking decisions.
During this mulitplier event (ME) of the project Ensite Environmental Socio-Scientific Issues in Initial teacher education) we will present and discuss examples of how students in Initial teacher education can learn about statistics and SSI and how they in turn can teach this in secondary school.
