Title: Investigating the Teaching of High-School Statistics with Technology Through the Use of Annotated Lesson Plans
Author(s): Elizabeth Arnold*

Keywords: statistics ; randomized experiment ; annotated lesson plans ; technology ; high school

The teaching of statistics should model the practice of statistics, in which technology is an indispensable tool. In a world that emphasizes technology use, teachers cannot truly be successful teaching statistics without the knowledge and expertise needed to effectively integrate technology in their classrooms. Accordingly, there is a need for materials to support teachers in the development of their technological, pedagogical, and content knowledge in statistics; annotated lesson plans may be an appropriate means to guide teaching with technology in ways that improve teachers' cognitive use of technology in statistics. Ultimately, teachers that can effectively integrate technology in ways that help develop conceptual understanding of statistical concepts can offer their students a considerable advantage in becoming statistically literate. A randomized experiment was designed to investigate the impact annotated lesson plans have on in-service high school teachers' use of technology when teaching statistics in Algebra II and Mathematics III; the design and results of this study will be presented herein.
