Teaching a Student-Active Data-Driven Introductory Statistics Course

Teaching a Student-Active Data-Driven Introductory Statistics Course
Charlie Bertness
Indiana University of Pennsylvania, Indiana, PA
May 21-25, 2001

The workshop is designed to help instructors to incorporate the ASA-MAA Committee on Undergraduate Statistics Recommendations for an introductory Statistics course. These guidelines encourage the development of statistical thinking with the use of data and student-active learning. Topics included are the collection of data, exploratory data analysis, statistical inference, and the use of statistical software. Participants will create and share web-based class materials and learn to use the web as a teaching and resource tool. Faculty at two-year institutions are especially encouraged.

Participants will be provided with room and board on campus and free materials for the workshop. It is expected that transportation costs will be provided by the participant's institution. The MAA will provide travel support for participants from resource-poor institutions, in this case contact Tom Rishel at or call 202-319-8470.
