Limited Capacity seats available

My talk will be based on North Carolina MAT 143 objective 4.9: Polling and margin of error. I’ll walk through an activity-based lesson designed to cover this objective. The stated objectives of this lesson are: 1 – Look up online and discuss recent polling information. 2- Identify margin of error in a poll. 3 - Calculate and interpret the meaning of margin of error. 4 - Calculate the number of respondents needed for a given margin of error. In addition, I’ll be discussing aspects of the national quantitative reasoning movement with a focus on using the things that I’ve learned to improve the relevance of teaching specifically in the non-STEM setting.
