One of the challenges faced by mathematics teacher educators (when creating professional development opportunities) is attending to the specific needs of teachers who possess different strengths within the TPACK Framework. Since the TPACK Framework is not content specific, this poster session will narrow the content focus to the grade 6-8 probability and statistics Common Cores State Standards and a relatively new technology called TinkerPlots Dynamic Data Explorations, (V2). TinkerPlots provides an excellent technology for the development and study of TPACK, because the features support inquiry-based learning through the creation and exploration of dynamically linked data plots and probability simulations. Informal observations of how teachers interacted with the program are related to different knowledge levels for the purpose of informing future teacher training and research.
