Description:

Engaging in social issues in today's society requires an understanding of numerical data, statistics, and mathematical assumptions that underlie discussions about the federal budget, the spread of disease and other issues. However, the mathematics and the social issues are often considered in isolation and leave many Americans "ill-prepared to make informed decisions." The Thinking with Data Project is a new initiative of the National Science Foundation, SRI International, Kent State University and Green Middle School in Uniontown, Ohio, that helps students improve math skills in the context of real-world issues. This project to improve student literacy is described more in this news release.
