Using School Mathematics to Develop Students’ Data Literacy Skills
Joshua David Jones
To be literate in a society where the information shared online is often exploited, learners should be exposed to multiple aspects of contemporary predictive modeling. Explore a lesson in which students learned an algorithm used in practice to automate the process of making recommendations.
Integrating Machine Learning in Mathematics Classrooms
Explore a lesson in which students used conditional probability to conjecture a predictive text algorithm, which, if translated into a coding language, could teach a computer to predict what a user wants to type, given the previous words in a message.
