Description

Santa Ana College is hosting a half-day workshop to share activities that deepen statistical understanding and discuss best practices in pedagogy related to the teaching of introductory statistics at the community college level. California community college math faculty are encouraged to attend, especially since there is a need for increased statistics offerings as our colleges add courses compliant with AB 705

This workshop is designed for math instructors who might be new to teaching statistics or veteran teachers who wish to update their teaching practice. Dr. Peck will share interactive activities that focus on statistical thinking. We will also discuss teaching and implementing sampling distributions and hypothesis test activities in the classroom.

Dr. Roxy Peck, a pioneer and international leader in the field of statistics education, will be our lead facilitator. Dr. Peck is a professor emeritus of statistics at California Polytechnic State University, where she served as chair of the statistics department for six years and as associate dean of the college of science and mathematics for 13 years. A fellow of the American Statistical Association, she also is an elected member of the International Statistical Institute. She has received numerous awards throughout her career, including the ASA Founders Award and the Lifetime Achievement Award in Statistics from the US Conference on Teaching Statistics. She also has served as past chair of the Joint ASA/NCTM Committee on Curriculum in Probability and Statistics for Grades K–12 and the ASA Section on Statistical Education.

Registration/Payment Information: Free

Registration is limited to the first 40 people, and we will have a waitlist if we reach capacity.

As the workshop date approaches, we will send you an agenda, campus map and parking information.
