General Description

Maths with Google Sheets is one of a series of three Professional Learning (PL) Courses on how to effectively integrate Google Sheets to enhance the teaching, learning and assessing of Secondary School Mathematics courses. This particular series is called ‘Statistics (Univariate and Bivariate Data Analysis. The other two courses are ‘Maths with Google Sheets: Financial Maths’ and ‘Maths with Google Sheets: Time Series Analysis’. The objective is to empower teachers who will in turn enable their students to make connections between the mathematics that they learn in the classroom with those that is applied in the real-world. This approach has been proven to motivate students to value the subject and increase their engagement and inquisitiveness. This objective is achieved by using real world data and scenarios to develop various mathematical concepts.

Audience

This PL is intended for teachers of Years 7-12 Mathematics courses.

Very interesting and relevant

The first 75% of the course was relevant to the levels of Mathematics I am teaching and I love the step by step instructions. I was able to work alongside the presenter in real time to produce the graphs and analyse the data.

80% of the content is relevant and falls within the course work of Year 7 to 12. The rest – 20% is appreciated as it enables us as teachers to develop a greater understanding of where the key elements in statistics are applied in a real-world context.

This course was very interesting. I already knew how to use a spreadsheet software such as Excel with statistics but not so much Google sheets. Our school has decided to use G-suite therefore, I feel more proficient now that I finished the course.


About the team


Nazim Khan

Creator

I am an enthusiastic Mathematics teacher, passionate about integrating technology and real-life data in Mathematics teaching and learning. My specialist fields are Mathematics and Statistics in which I have over 18 years of teaching and 2 years of research experience.

My teaching experience involved over 13 years at various secondary schools and 5 years at various tertiary institutes in Australia and Fiji. Further, for 2 years I have worked at the Australian National University as a Research Assistant.

At secondary school level I have taught Mathematics from Years 7 to 12, and have also been a pastoral care teacher and member of various school committees. At tertiary level, I have taught Mathematics and Statistics (undergraduate level), and Biostatistics (undergraduate and postgraduate levels) via both face-to-face and distance education modes. My other experiences at tertiary level included reviewing and development of courses in Biostatistics, providing statistical advice to students and staff undertaking research, and membership of various staff committees. As a Research Assistant at ANU, I have been involved in analysis of large datasets and preparation of statistical reports.
