Dear Chuck,

I too am new at teaching this course. I try to complete a topic in 3 class
periods and use a fourth to summarize and/or to show a video. The kids
really enjoy working in groups and find the materials very interesting.
The videos I show are segments of Decisions through Data.

I have just completed topic 9 and feel that I will have to do so traditional
teaching to explain transforming data. But I am concerned that I am
behind and that perhaps this approach is not rigorous enough.
However, regardless of how they do on the AP exam, I am convinced
that this is a wonderful educational experience. I also have them read
Moore's BPS. They have read through sction 2.5

Hope this helps

Alaine
