Supporting Statistical Thinking Through a Capstone Project

Presented by:

Herle McGowan, North Carolina State University

02:30pm - 03:00pm Eastern Standard Time, July 27th, 2010


In this webinar, I will discuss the end-of-semester project that is used in North Carolina State's introductory statistics course. This project supports statistical thinking by allowing students to apply knowledge accumulated throughout the semester. Students are presented with a research question and must design and carry out an experiment, analyze the resulting data and form a conclusion over the course of several class periods.
