Do you use hands-on activities in your class? Would you be interested in using data collected by students from different classes at different institutions? Would you be interested in sharing your students' data with others? Does it take more time than you would like to spend in your class for hands-on activities? Do you have to enter the hands-on activity data yourself after the class period?
If your answer to any of the above questions is "YES", then, this Real-Time Online Database approach should be beneficial to your class.
In this presentation, we will (1) introduce the real-time online database (stat.cst.cmich.edu/statact) funded by a NSF/CCL grant, (2) demonstrate how to use the real-time database to teach introductory statistics using two of the real-time activities and (3) share with you some of the assessment activities including activity work sheets and projects.
