The recommendations are consistent with NCTM and College Board standards. ASA is applying for Professional Development half-credit for 7-13 contact hours for Utah teachers.

During the conference, teachers will have the opportunity to develop lesson plans for statistics concepts or activities and receive group feedback. ASA members will be at the workshop to network with teachers and organize learning communities.
