First of all, you may all be interested to know that a draft of the Teacher's Guide to the Advanced Placement Course in Statistics is now available through ETS. (email James Armstrong: email@example.com) I don't know when the final version will be available but I have found the draft to be extremely helpful.
I am also interested to know more about specific student projects some of you experienced teachers have used in the past. Maybe once I start teaching a statistics course, I'll think of a million possible projects, but right now in the planning stage I'd like to hear from those who have "been there". (The draft of the teacher's guide has one example of a sample survey project.) Perhaps it's too difficult to explain in detail a project via this listserv, so if anyone can direct me to a resource where I could find some good examples, I'd greatly appreciate it!
Thanks and aloha, Christine David Punahou School 1601 Punahou St. Honolulu, HI 96822
