Data Analysis, Statistics and Probability Summary

Tuesday, July 2, 2002

All members are working through the FATHOM tutorial at their own pace with help from Beverly and Carol. It helps to be within the program and experiencing successes and failures with help readily available.

Suzanne led the group through the Discussion segment of the PCMI website, encouraging members to use it while we are here so it becomes a habit. She also led us to the Provide Your Photo Info Page where all information was filled in by each participant and sent to Suzanne via email. Note to Suzanne was then examined and the ease with which the page could be used is a miracle!

Carol has entered all the data which was collected from the High School teachers this morning into FATHOM. We will use this data later on.

Members were then shown how to import data from the web into a FATHOM document, and we continued to be amazed by the software.
