Abstract

This chapter presents vignettes taken from a Probability and Statistics content course for elementary and middle school pre-service teachers. The vignettes are used to highlight issues when engaging students in statistical inquiry through technology use. Specifically, the authors address how particular Standards for Mathematical Practice should be understood differently from a perspective of statistical inquiry and how certain technological tools provide strong affordances for addressing these differences. The vignettes provide examples of what this could look like in a classroom by illustrating ways of attending to these practices in a statistical way through the use of technologies such as TinkerPlots®, Dropbox, Google Drive, and Interactive White Boards.
