### Article: Children Play Mathematics at Camp Invention by Uslick, J. & Barr, S. (2001)

by Joe Estephan

Here is a link to where you can locate this article. Uslick & Barr (2001) state: “children learn best by doing activities that they enjoy” (p. 392). In this unit, students are given several opportunities to collect, represent, and analyze data. It is important that students experience how statistics are produced, the different ways they are displayed, and what kind of information can be understood from analyzing graphs, such as single and double bar graphs. This read has influenced the creation of this unit.

### Article: Middle grades: Misconceptions in statistical thinking. School Science and Mathematics by Capraro, M. M., Kulm, G., & Capraro, R. M. (2005).

by Joe Estephan

One goal for this unit is for students to understand a variety of graphs and their use and purpose. Capraro et al. explain that “One of the most important decisions for students to make in the construction of a graph is determining which visual method should be used to answer the question presented” (p. 165). Read the full article to see how students were given multiple experiences to better understand graphing and become more successful in applying their learning when solving problems.

### Wordle

by Joe Estephan

Here is the direct link to create your own classroom Wordle for Lesson #4 (http://www.curriki.org/xwiki/bin/view/Coll_estephanj/lesson4) According to the website: "Wordle is a toy for generating “word clouds” from text that you provide. The clouds give greater prominence to words that appear more frequently in the source text. You can tweak your clouds with different fonts, layouts, and color schemes. The images you create with Wordle are yours to use however you like. You can print them out, or save them to the Wordle gallery to share with your friends. "
