Abstract

Although the use of tables, graphs, and figures to summarize information has long existed, the advent of the big data era and improved computing power has brought renewed attention to the field of data visualization. As such, it is crucial that introductory statistics courses train students to become critical authors and consumers of data visualizations. To that end, we have developed a semester-long, instructor-supported, group project that exposes students to this growing field. We have found this project to be an exciting and effective way to teach students the power of statistics and, more importantly, the critical role context plays when interpreting statistics. Among the many benefits of this project are hands-on learning, improved mathematical reasoning, and better collaboration and communication skills. In this article, we describe the project structure, project assessment, and techniques for facilitating effective group work.

Jeg er ansat som adjunkt hos Læreruddannelsen i Jelling, hvor jeg underviser i matematik, specialiseringsmodulet teknologiforståelse, praktik m.m. Jeg har tidligere været ansat som pædagogisk konsulent i matematik og tysk hos UCL ved Center for Undervisningsmidler (CFU) i Vejle og lærer i udskolingen (7.-9. klasse) på Lyshøjskolen i Kolding. Jeg er ejer af og driver bl.a. hjemmesiderne www.lærklokken.dk og www.iundervisning.dk, ggbkursus.dk og er tidligere fagredaktør på matematik på emu.dk. Jeg går ind for, at læring skal være let tilgængelig og i størst mulig omfang gratis at benytte.
