Has this group given serious consideration to

Rossman, Workshop Statistics: Discovery With Data .New York:
Springer-Verlag. 1996
or

Schaeffer et al. Activity Based Statistics. New York:
Springer-Verlag. 1996.

The approach to both seems to be activity-based and aimed at developing
statistical understanding, not merely computational literacy in statistics.

I'm considering either the Rossman or the Schaeffer as an adjunct or lab
manual to Moore (which seems entirely adequate...not as involuted as the
Moore and McCabe). Is anyone who has reviewed either of these texts
willing to contribute his or her analysis to the discussion group?
