This group will develop 1-3 lessons that use the statistical software FATHOM as a tool for understanding the mathematics and the application of that mathematics in contexts that require data analysis, probability and statistical concepts. The goal is to write lessons and problems of outstanding caliber, having deep mathematical content but accessible at both the high school and middle school levels. The group will explore the use of the Math Forum's Problem of the Week environment, PCMI Problem, as a way to involve students with the concepts relevant.
