Abstract: 

PACE stands for projects, activities, class lectures, and exercises. The approach begins with in-class hands-on activities and cooperative team work. The class lectures are organized to provide the basic concepts and guide students through the activities using team work and computer to help students understand the concepts and problem-solving strategies. Projects are self-selected by students under some guidance provided by the instructor. Report writing and oral presentations are emphasized. This article reports an assessment of the PACE model applied in an introductory statistics class.
