The goal of the Using Interactive Data Tools in Mathematics Professional Development Project was to develop, conduct, and test professional development for middle level educators to support the effective use of interactive technology for learning targeted data and statistics mathematics standards and practices as outlined in the Common Core State Standards. The professional development included embedded research-‐based instructional strategies and approaches, as well as activities that used example student lesson materials. Project resources include brief pre/post assessments, interactive applets, student activities, teacher aids, and other materials. The assessments were designed to measure key aspects of the targeted data and statistics mathematics standards and practices within the student lessons. Student performance on the assessments was scored and analyzed by project staff.
