December webinar

December StatPREP Webinar
Date: Dec 10, 3pm EST , 2 pm CST, 1 pm MST, noon PST
  • Who: Donna LaLonde & Danny Kaplan
  • Donna is  the Director of Strategic Initiatives and Outreach at the American Statistical Association and the ASA liaison on  the StatPREP Board. Danny is one of the founders of StatPREP and a professor at Macalester College in Saint Paul, Minnesota.
  • Title: The Compact Guide to Classical Inference: Why?
  • Description: In December 2019, StatPREP.org starts the serial publication of a short and highly specialized book: The Compact Guide to Classical Inference. Keeping in mind that StatPREP is about centering statistics education on real data, this book is an anomaly: the introduction of a reframed mathematical approach to statistical inference. The reframed approach unifies into a simple, single standard procedure all the inferential settings found in intro stats and carries forward naturally to apply to “advanced” settings such as multiple regression. The webinar will be a conversation between Donna and Danny about how the many formulae and probability tables of historical statistics can be unified into a single simple test statistic, F, and an expression for the confidence interval in terms of F.

 

November Consulting Days: 12th and 15th

The StatPREP consulting days for this month are :

  • Tuesday 12 Nov
  • Friday 15 Nov.

Consulting days are one of the ways StatPREP provides ongoing support <!–more—-> to project participants.

  • Trying a new data set in your class, but need some help getting everything organized?
  • A lesson or activity from the workshops you want to implement, but don’t remember the details?
  • Wondering how the parts of statistics fit together?
  • Need a bit of help with R or Markdown or deploying data or documents to the web?
  • Just want to talk some things out?

Sign up ON THIS CALENDAR for a 30 minute session or two sessions back to back. (You’ll land on the calendar for today, so page forward to get to the actual consulting day.) Our doors are open all day, from 8am Eastern to 5pm Pacific.

We meet via web conference, at https://appear.in/mosaic-web. All you need is a browser on a computer with microphone (and at your option) camera.

Dan Adrian’s Happy Apps

Dan has written a new set of apps to help in teaching intro stats. In this post, Dan lists and briefly describes his “Happy Apps.”

How do the Happy Apps relate to the StatPREP project’s Little Apps? The Little Apps are rooted in displays of data; statistical concepts are always directly put in the context of such displays. The Happy Apps have graphics oriented to methods and the statistical theory behind them. These are two different pedagogies for teaching statistics.

And now, here’s Dan Adrian …

Introducing the Happy Apps collection, a baker’s dozen of R Shiny apps for introductory statistics at the undergraduate (or AP Stats) level. Each is a dynamic visual aid addressing a specific concept or topic in intro stats. They make nice visual aids to add to a lecture, or teachers Read more
