"TIGERSTATS (Teach It Gently: Elementary R and STATisticS)"
Rebekah Robinson & Homer White, Georgetown College
The TIGERSTATS Project at Georgetown College aims to enable computationally-challenged mathematics professors to teach statistics at the elementary level to students of average ability successfully and with zest, using the powerful open-source programming environment known as R. Inspired by and building upon the work of Project Mosaic (mosaic-web.org), we offer the following tools for instructors and students:
- the R contributed package "tigerstats" (current version available on GitHub at github.com/homerhanumat/tigerstats), which in conjunction with package "mosaic" provides a simplified interface to the R programming environment and a large suite of engaging instructional apps;
- a website with links to course materials (text-under-development, slide presentations, video lectures);
- a blog site, with special focus on technical issues, for colleagues who wish to modify the TIGERSTATS approach for their own institutions, and to improve upon it.
