As I pointed out in my other email [which you might want to read first]:
I have contacted Linda Gojak, the program chair in Minneapolis, the site of this years NCTM meeting in April. She says that there are no AP Stats presentations scheduled! Can this be true???
Now is the time to plan ahead for future meetings. I have submitted proposals for 90 minute workshops for the Hartford Regional NCTM Meeting next fall and the Washington, D.C. National Meeting in Spring '98. I hope AP Stats can have more representation at the NCTM meetings...it certainly is one of the ways to help Statistics become thought of as a mainstream topic by those who do not teach it. Hope a lot of us will consider putting in proposals...lets have a couple at every meeting - particularly regional and local ones. If I can do it after teaching my first statistics course anyone can (and probably better)!
=============================================== Is anyone or group planning to put together a group meeting for Washington DC National in the Spring of '98? If not I will start working on it now so that it is included in the program booklet.
