USCOTS 2009 - About


Goals of USCOTS

  • Hold a national conference that focuses on undergraduate level statistics education (including AP Statistics), targeting statistics teachers.
  • Share ideas, methods, and research results regarding what teachers want to know about teaching statistics: What should I teach? How do I teach it? Where do I get good resources? And, what research can I rely on to assess whether what I'm doing is effective and appropriate?
  • Facilitate teachers incorporating new ideas, methods, and resources into their existing courses and programs.
  • Promote connections between all teachers of undergraduate level statistics throughout the country.
