Allan Rossman and Beth Chance will offer a summer workshop at Cal Poly in June, 2004 on their NSF curriculum development project titled "A Data-Oriented, Active Learning, Post-Calculus Introduction to Statistical Concepts, Applications, and Theory." This workshop is intended for faculty members who want to develop a data analysis course for mathematically inclined students, or to teach a course for prospective teachers that models the content and pedagogy of the AP curriculum and NCTM standards, or to infuse an existing course with more data and activities. Workshop participants will receive an immersion experience in using the curricular materials, as well as suggestions for implementing the materials in their own courses.
A preliminary version of the text, titled Investigating Statistical Concepts, Applications, and Methods, will be available from Duxbury Press this fall. For more information, see http://www.rossmanchance.com/iscat/.
