In the summer of 2017, we will hold three workshops for middle- and high-school or college statistics instructors. 
  • Beyond AP Statistics (BAPS)
        Description: This workshop is designed for experienced   introductory statistics instructors.  It covers material just           beyond the introductory/AP Statistics curricula.  It is useful for instructors who assign projects to their students that employ more advanced methods, for those with a curiosity about learning more statistics, or for those interested in pursuing independent statistical consulting.
        When: July 18-21, 2017
        Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday: 9am - 5pm
