Funding is available to support all local expenses of the participants. In addition, five stipends of up to $250 are available to help defray the cost of travel for persons who are from resource poor colleges.
Participants will take part in several laboratory experiences which illustrate important concepts of applied statistics. Strategies for successful supervision of laboratory experiments, leading student teams, having students prepare written reports, obtaining equipment, generating enrollments and training lab assistants will also be addressed. Participants will be asked to use at least two of the ten experiment-based exercises in their own courses during the 1997-1998 academic year.
