Goals and Objectives of INSPIRE

The objective of the INSPIRE program was to craft a professional development experience for secondary teachers that would prepare them to

• teach an introductory statistics class following the AP Statistics curriculum
• learn and understand the concepts and methods of introductory statistics
• use real data, active learning and technology to teach statistics
• understand statistics as a comprehensive approach to data analysis
• become familiar with a variety of resources for teaching introductory statistics

An additional important goal was to develop a long-lasting community of learners who advise and support each other.
