Using (and contributing to!) the Chance News Wiki

Tuesday, April 13th, 20102:00 pm – 2:30 pm ET

Presented by: Jeanne Albert & Bill Peterson, Middlebury College


This year, Jeanne and Bill assumed co-editorship of the Chance News Wiki, which as of March 15 will be moving to CAUSEweb. The Wiki provides reviews of current news stories that are relevant to teaching statistics and probability, along with links to original articles and related resources. This webinar will describe the various ways that Chance project materials have been used, in areas ranging from traditional introductory statistics to statistical literacy courses to first-year seminars. We will also discuss the mechanics of posting to the Wiki, and hope to inspire some new contributors.
