Abstract

Rebekka will describe how students make connections as they learn new material and why working with large authentic datasets can play an important role in addressing misconceptions. Catherine will describe how EDDIE modules are designed to help students improve quantitative reasoning using large datasets. They will both provide further insight into student and instructor experiences using these large-dataset modules.
