It features activities that conceptually introduce students in grades 9-14 to statistical and graphical analysis techniques. Technology is used to do the mathematical calculations so students can focus on interpreting the results and developing a conceptual understanding of the statistical and graphical techniques. The modules, all with discussions and hands-on activities, cover descriptive statistics, inferential statistics, two-dimensional graphical analysis, and three-dimensional data visualization.

As a resource, Frisbie teachers used Addison Wesley's textbook "Multiculturalism in Mathematics, Science and Technology: Readings and Activities" [ISBN 0-201-29417-6]. Drawing inspiration from the book's activities, the department's nine mathematics teachers wrote directions for the students to follow. In developing activities, attention was given to the genders, cultures, and continents of the mathematicians represented. -|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|- CHECK OUT OUR WEB SITE: The Math Forum @ Drexel http://mathforum.org/ Ask Dr. Math http://mathforum.org/dr.math/ Problems of the Week http://mathforum.org/pow/ Mathematics Library http://mathforum.org/library/ Math Tools http://mathforum.org/mathtools/ Teacher2Teacher http://mathforum.org/t2t/ Discussion Groups http://mathforum.org/kb/ Join the Math Forum http://mathforum.org/join.forum.html Send comments to the Math Forum Internet Newsletter editors Donations http://deptapp.drexel.edu/ia/GOL/giftsonline1_MF.asp Ask Dr. Math Books http://mathforum.org/pubs/dr.mathbooks.html _o \o_ __| \ / |__ o _ o/ \o/ __|- __/ \__/o \o | o/ o/__/ /\ /| | \ \ / \ / \ /o\ / \ / \ / | / \ / \ |
