ab: From the preface: This book is intended for teachers of college and high
school statistics courses. The different chapters cover demonstrations,
examples, and projects for a succession of topics in statistics and
probability. (We distinguish between demonstrations, which involve
active student participation, and examples, which are conducted by the
instructor.) This book contains more material than could possibly be
used in a single course; we suggest you read through it all and then
try out some of the ideas. Pick and choose what works for you. Part I
of the book presents a large selection of activities for introductory
statistics courses. Part II gives some tips on what works and what
doesnâ€™t, how to set up effective demonstrations and examples, and how
to inspire students to participate in class and work effectively in
homeworks, exams, and group projects. A sample course plan is presented
in Chapter 12 to illustrate how to integrate these materials into a
semester-long statistics course. Part III presents demonstrations,
examples, and projects for some more advanced courses on topics
including decision theory, Bayesian statistics, sampling, and
mathematical probability and statistics.
