 and high school math and science teachers from Utah and around the U.S. attended interactive sessions with prominent statistics educators and statisticians. The workshop participants are currently participating in MWM follow-up activities including webinars and other activities with local ASA chapter members. Due to the success of MWM 2007, we are pleased to expand this workshop to include K-12 teachers this year."

The National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) standards, most state math standards, and the recent College Board standards include requirements for teaching data analysis, statistics, and probability. ASA's program is designed to enhance K-12 educators' understanding of statistics and to provide them with information and tools to help them strengthen the teaching of statistics within the math curriculum.

The primary goal of the 2008 MWM program is to provide an opportunity for K-12 math and science teachers to discuss and apply the data analysis and statistical concepts embodied in the Guidelines for Assessment and Instruction in Statistics Education

 (GAISE) Report: A Pre-K-12 Curriculum Framework (www.amstat.org/education/gaise). Teachers will explore problems that require them to collect, organize, analyze, and draw conclusions from data and apply basic concepts of probability.

To encourage participation, ASA will provide the registration fee, handouts, and some meals to accepted applicants. Workshop attendees also may receive a set reimbursement for lodging expenses for a two-night stay (one-night for Denver area teachers). Teachers also will have the option of attending sessions at JSM, such as the Statistical Education Sessions and Poster Session, and will be admitted to the Exhibit Hall.

Teachers are encouraged to attend both Monday and Tuesday sessions. Sessions for grades K-4 and 9-12 teachers will be held on Monday, and sessions for grades 5-8 teachers will take place on Tuesday. When not participating in their own sessions, teachers may attend the other MWM sessions or the JSM sessions. There will be a dinner and career panel discussion Monday evening for all participating teachers.

Teachers wishing to attend the conference can apply online by going to www.amstat.org/education/mwm and clicking on the "MWM Application" tab. Review and acceptance of applications to attend MWM will continue until the course is filled.
