Summary: We introduce a new set of interactive learning labs for introductory statistics courses. The targeted courses are taught in a classroom equipped with laptop computers to accommodate a mathematics laboratory environment. Specific lab modules are centered on major themes or concepts, amplified by current readings, and enhanced by the computer software systems MS Excel, SPSS, and Fathom. Experiential learning has been at the heart of the design since students will be experimenting statistical ideas using computers during lab sessions. They will be expected to work in small groups so that the learning centered clusters will exchange ideas in the spirit of cooperative learning. We will discuss and elaborate on the rationale underlying the development of the labs.
