Statistical Association (ASA)
Mathematicians and others who teach courses in introductory statistics
will be pleased to know that the course Teaching Statistics with
Active Learning will again be offered on January 4 and 5 preceding
the Joint Mathematics Meetings in San Diego. Presenters for
this two-day LearnSTAT course are Beth L. Chance and Allan
J. Rossman, California Polytechnic State University. The course
is designed for instructors from universities, colleges, junior
colleges, and high schools. It will actively involve participants
with hands-on investigations that can be adopted for use with students.
The course is of particular value to those who teach statistics
but have little training in the discipline. Visit the LearnSTAT
site at http://www.amstat.org/education/learnstat.html
for complete course description, registration, hotel information,
and course cost. Inquiries can be directed to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
