These workshops, designed and presented by Cognition Education, provide a fresh look at learning for students in Year 13 statistics. Focusing on NZC objectives and the PPDAQ cycle, each workshop is set in an engaging context. Teachers will be prepared for integrating student research into their learning sequences and supporting students in report writing. Each workshop provides the basis for a complete teaching unit. iNZight software will be used, and teachers should download the latest version from Census at School before the workshops. A software update is expected in Term 1, 2014.
