Create an Iron Chef in statistics classes?

Tuesday, June 14th, 20112:00 pm – 2:30 pm

Presented by: Rebekah Isaak, Laura Le, Laura Ziegler, and the CATALST Team


This webinar provides an overview of the research foundations of a radically different introductory statistics course: the CATALST course. This course teaches students the skills they need in order to truly cook with statistics, not just the procedures they need in order to follow a statistical recipe. In addition to the research foundations of the course, we will describe unique aspects of this course as well as details of a one-year teaching experiment to learn how this course can be taught and its impact on student learning.
