Volume 7, Number 2 (Spring 2001)
This past fall the Mathematical Association of America (MAA) published a new book in its Notes series called "Teaching Statistics: Resources for Undergraduate Teachers." The book is a collection of classical and original articles on statistics education along with descriptions of several of the innovative and successful projects that have been recently developed along with "companion pieces" on these projects that give pointers on their use from teachers who have used them in the own courses. The goal of the volume is to provide beginning and experienced teachers with practical help on getting more data into their courses, using alternative teaching and assessment methods, and using electronic resources for teaching.
