<<Questions about Workshop Statistics. How do you run a class? I have 50 minute periods. How much do you actually do in class? All the activities? How much do you assign for homework? We are currently using Moore (BPS) but the activities in Rossman look wonderful. >>
WS is our main text book. As suggested by some teachers who used the text before, I do every activity up to the homework section (I think you have to) and variable amounts of the homework section. I try to go through the homework activities and pick the minimum number of activities which make the points of the topic or make new points. Try for no or little redundency. Specific assignment to WS are below...other assignments in BPS and on projects are not included. Sorry if too much detail.
Do you know about Dick Shaefer's Book, "Activity Based Statistics." A lot of teachers who are using a "regular textbook" are using it for activities - good stuff
Phil..are you permanently at PEA?

Note: Minitab will give you a five number summary which is not quite the same as you would expect...we will get the exact rules in the next Topic. WS/Activity 2-14 WS/Wrap-Up p. 38 -------------------- TOPIC 3 WS/Read page 39 WS/Activity 3-1/ (we did together in class), WS/Activity 3-2/ check mean and median with TI-83 when done. WS/Activity 3-3/(a) See 2-1 for dotplots, Use TI-83 for all calculations. WS/Activity 3-4/Medians can be determine from given dotplots and checked using TI-83. WS/Activity 3-5/Data has been handed out. Use the handout APSTATS Histograms on the TI-83 to enter the data by hand and produce a histogram. WS/Activity 3-6/Follow instructions and check with TI-83. WS/Activity 3-7/Remember to change the variable in your XList of the Stat Plot WS/Activity 3-10/Be careful to answer the question - particularly in part a. Do part e by hand and then on the TI-83. WS/Activity 3-12/Crucial activity. Check your work with TI-83. WS/Activity 3-13/ WS/Wrap-Up p. 53-54
