Felicia Griffin SimpsonMember2/01/20201/31/2023ASA Representative
Committee Charge
1/28/2011To stimulate effective change in undergraduate statistical education, particularly in the majority of institutions where the department of mathematics bears the primary responsibility for the teaching of statistics.

The Committee should examine and make recommendations concerning:

  • individual course offerings;
  • teaching practices;
  • faculty qualifications;
  • course sequences in support of various options;
  • use of computers in undergraduate statistics courses;
  • connections with other departments that use or teach statistics;
  • statistics requirements for undergraduate majors;
  • statistical education of elementary and secondary teachers and;
  • impact on undergraduate curricula of improvement in pre-college statistical education.

    In order to undertake this broad agenda, the Committee should consider a variety of activities, including studies to gather relevant information, panels, or speakers at professional meetings, articles in professional newsletters or periodicals; campus visits; identification of exemplary programs and materials; development of a comprehensive report with specific recommendations.

    The Committee is urged to seek foundation support for its work, with assistance from the MAA central office.

    Composition: The Committee is composed of 12 members, six to be appointed by the ASA and six to be appointed by the Mathematical Association of America (MAA). Two members will be appointed/reappointed by each organization each year for three year terms. The Chair is a member of the Committee and serves for two years. The Chair is alternately appointed by the ASA and MAA.

    8/01/2012To lead initiatives, advance policy, monitor projects, and plan activities that support those who are responsible for the mathematical education of teachers. Through this work COMET is charged with informing and advising the MAA leadership and the MAA membership on matters that relate to the mathematical education of teachers.

    The mathematical education of teachers includes pre-professional preparation and professional development in mathematics and in the teaching of mathematics, K - 12. Accordingly, COMET encourages timely renewal efforts of mathematics courses and programs designed for prospective K- 12 teachers. COMET also promotes thoughtful participation of MAA members in schools and in professional development programs that enhance the mathematical understanding of in-service K- 12 teachers.
