First I wanted to let you know that, at least for the first 4 days of class, my AP Stats class using Workshop Statistics has been a huge success. In fact, we keep running over the period (no bells in our school). You should know that students overwhelmingly endorsed in their early written comments the concept of a student centered, independent course.
Second, I see a new version (available January 1997) of Workshop Statistics in the new Key Curriculum Press Catalog. It has a different cover and a second author (Barr Von Oehsen). What, if anything will be different about this version?
