I just started with Allan Rossman's "Workshop Statistics". Two kids to a
computer work through activities together using any stat software. I use
MiniTab, which isn't powerful but is sufficient and cheap. The concepts and
techniques are discovered and then labeled. The book is more of a workbook
with WrapUp of ideas and definitions. No other text is needed. The teacher
can learn along with the kids - or rather the day before. Very little
lecture - mostly discussions or data gathering or clearing up a point here
and there. The data is really taken by students or is real data from
references. Neat variety.
Dickinson College has three Workshop (discovery) Math courses -
Statistics, Calculus and Quantitative Analysis. Springer-Verlag is their
publisher. Eventhough this is a college course, my high school sophomores
through seniors have no problem following. Completion of Algebra II required
more for the mental level than the skills.
