NSW Department of Education
Workshop: Navigating a rapidly changing world with Data
Workshop Video Link
It is becoming increasingly challenging to navigate this rapidly changing world without understanding and interpreting data and its representations. During this discussion piece, Daniel Proctor, Mathematics Advisor NSW, will start with the story of the emergence of data and projections for potential applications. The story will be integrated with real life examples and in class activities, including Daniel’s own personal experiences consulting with some of the biggest global companies. This will lead to the impact on students and the demands placed on them to successfully overcome the challenges ahead. In the presentation there will be reference to the recently developed NSW Department of Education resources for the Big Idea of Investigating Uncertainty, which links to the strand of Statistics and Probability.
