Making Changes with Technology in Mathematical Statistics

Presented by:

Jennifer L. Green (MSU) & Jennifer Broatch (ASU)


The accessibility and flexibility of technology provides rich opportunities to enhance the traditionally lecture-intensive two-semester calculus-based mathematical statistics sequence. Software, such as R, can be used in multiple ways to promote student exploration and understanding of concepts (Buttrey et al., 2001; Green & Blankenship, 2015; Horton et al., 2004; Nolan & Temple Lang, 2003). In this poster, we provide examples of probability theory and mathematical statistics questions that have been adapted to integrate the use of R. In addition, we discuss ways in which using statistical software in the mathematical statistics sequence has presented both benefits and challenges, and we offer advice for others wanting to make changes with technology in these courses.
