The development of a data-driven curriculum for high school mathematics appears to be in line with the needs of students to see more motivation and application within the mathematics classroom and to develop important skills to carry beyond the classroom. The revised curriculum under development is designed to raise the quantitative literacy off all students as it builds connections among mathematics, science, and technology. It models a new approach to the teaching of mathematics, the approach required by the NCTM Standards, as it emphasizes hands-on activities for students and discovery of concepts through data. Technology in the form of graphing calculators and computers is an integral part of the teaching and learning style being promoted through these materials and workshops. This project attempts to connect topics of importance in a modern mathematics curriculum to a modern view of statistical science for the purpose of enhancing student interest and skills in both areas.
