Every teacher can only provide influence and options to students; they are the ones who will make choices for what they do and how they strive (or don’t) to do those things well. We will consider some of the most influential research on how humans make choices for themselves, and then more specifically in the context of education. We’ll consider marshmallows from the 70’s, the more recent elaboration this decade and even some new work whose ink is barely dry.
We’ll then take a look at math education, how it contributes to problems with statistics and what we can do across the educational trajectory to address it.
