Abstract

The first GAISE College Report came out in 2005. Over the past ten years our discipline has changed in many ways, including but not limited to what type of data is easily available, the technology that we use, as well as how we teach students. In this presentation we will briefly start with how the new GAISE 2016 guidelines and goals have changed, including the two new emphases of statistical thinking: giving students experience with multivariable thinking and with the investigative process. So how do you start to implement these new ideas? In this presentation, we will demonstrate an activity that meets these new GAISE 2016 guidelines. The activity will demonstrate how to illustrate multivariable thinking using technology in the classroom. This will be followed by a discussion on how the activity can be adapted for different learning environments (flipped classroom, completely online, technology challenged).
