George McCabe and Ellen Gundlach are from Purdue University. George is coauthor of Introduction to the Practice of Statistics, currently in its 5th edition, and The Practice of Business Statistics. Ellen teaches three sections of an elementary statistics course and is the course coordinator for nine sections. Topics: A recent task force has identified expected outcomes for an undergraduate major. These include the ability analyze data, to think logically and creatively, to apply knowledge to practical situations, to prepare and deliver an oral presentation, to make written arguments appropriate to a specific discipline, to work as part of a team, to participate in multidisciplinary activities, and to make decisions based on appropriate ethical considerations. We will lead a discussion concerning how an elementary statistics course can help to achieve these goals. (Sponsor: WH Freeman)
