SCHEMATYC Course Starts June 4, 2012. Registration open now! Enroll by May 4 to save money.

This online course covers a typical introductory statistics curriculum that meets the Guideliness for Assessment and Instruction in Statistics Education (GAISE), as endorsed by the American Statistical Association. Based on the NSF-funded INsight into Statistical Practice, Instruction and REasoning (INSPIRE), the course was designed by experienced statistics educators and an advisory panel that included two-year and university statisticians. Participants study one topic each week by doing activities, short self-graded homework exercises, and data analysis exercises. "Teaching tips" and other resources are introduced to help faculty prepare for classroom instruction. We anticipate that participants will need to devote about 10 hours per week to the course, although those with more experience in statistics will be able to spend less time. Prerequisite: A bachelor's degree. Participants should either be currently teaching an introductory statistics course at a two-year college or have recently taught one. This is not an introductory statistics course; students interested in introductory statistics should enroll in Statistics XL 10.

Required Text and Software Please purchase Fathom, which is the software we will use. Although this software is required, it is possible to use another statistical software package (but NOT a TI calculator), although we cannot provide instruction. The student edition (for about $40) is sufficient.

Prerequisite: A bachelor's degree.  Participants should either be currently teaching a high school statistics course or have recently taught one.
