Professional Development Short Course
In May, 2001, I had the priviledge of attending a course on "Using
the Web in Mathematics" at Texas A&M University in College
Station, TX. These web pages are the result of that course.

The
following links require a Javascript enabled browser with cascading
style sheet support. MSIE 4+ and Netscape Navigator 4+ are two browsers
that are known to work. Normally, I would design pages that work
without Javascript, but using Javascript was one of the goals of
the short course. 
Web Links 
A short list of mathematical resources that are available
online. Most of these are in the statistics area or lists to other
resources. 
The Dating Game 
A classroom activity designed to teach the concept
of standard deviation. There are two versions, the one I normally
give to my students and an online version. 
Descriptive Statistics 
This page summarizes an entire chapter's worth of
descriptive statistics, including measures of center, spread, and
position. Definitions and formulas are given for each of the different
statistics. You may enter your own data or realtime data fetched
from the Internet. 


The photos below are
from some of the classroom activities we perform in our introduction
to applied statistics course. We try to make learning fun and meaningful.
