ab: Summary: This paper describes an intensive month long experimental
undergraduate statistics course in which students were immersed in
introductory data and chance problem situations. Students “played
detective” and investigated data sets and probability problems using
the Chance-Plus applications (Konold and Miller, 1994) as their
principal technological tools. The level of students’ critical
analysis gradually improved throughout the course, as did their
confidence to investigate data on their own in the future. There are,
however, trade offs, as some content is sacrificed using this approach.
