## SOCR News & Events: 2013 SOCR blended mathematics and statistics education resources: the California Common Core State Standards

2013 SOCR LAUSD Common Core Standards Workshop

## Overview

The Statistics Online Computational Resource (SOCR) designs, validates and freely disseminates knowledge. Specifically, SOCR provides portable online aids for probability, statistics and mathematics education, technology based instruction and statistical computing. SOCR tools and resources include a repository of interactive applets, computational and graphing tools, instructional and course materials.

The California Common Core State Standards, CCSS describe the K-12 knowledge of California pupils by subject and grade. In California, the State Board of Education decides on the standards for all students, from kindergarten through high school.

## SOCR IT-Enhanced Blended Instruction resources

The SOCR technology-enhanced blended instruction model to K-12 science-education has the following advantages:

• Multi-lingual support: All materials are auto-translated into 24 different languages;
• CCSS support: The SOCR learning materials, tools and activities are community-built and cover most of the mathematics and statistics components of the CCSS standard;
• Open-access: All SOCR resources are always freely and openly accessible to all (students, teachers and the community) and can be customized for specific curricular needs (e.g., K12HSN Calaxy network);
• Blended Instructional Moldel: the SOCR learning resources blend information technology, open-datasets, scientific techniques and modern pedagogical concepts.

### SOCR Professional Development Activities

SOCR faculty, students and fellows regularly conduct onsite and remote continuing education training sessions and participate in local and National educational workshops. The future, current and past training activities are listed on the SOCR News website.
