## 2017 Summer Workshop

**Implementing the Standards for Mathematical Practice **

**August 14 – 18, 2017 (5-day workshop) **

**Salish Kootenai College, Pablo, MT**

**Workshop IV:** **Probability: A Study of Chance:** *Bringing the Standards for Mathematical Practice to life through the mathematics of probability for teachers grades 4-14*

** ****Presented by Patty Lofgren ****of the Mathematics Education Collaborative**

**Participants will deepen their own mathematical understandings of a range of mathematical ideas, including:**

- theoretical and experimental probability
- diverse models for determining probability (for example: area models, tree diagrams, organized lists, matrices)
- events, possible outcomes, defining and constructing sample space
- Law of Large Numbers
- computation and interpretation of expected value in simple cases
- inductive and deductive reasoning
- mathematically convincing arguments

Work with other K-20 teachers of mathematics to solve challenging and engaging problems both collaboratively and as independent problem solvers. Engage with colleagues in professional discussions of mathematics, instructional practice, and other relevant issues.
