Take Coursera MOOC "Teaching Statistical Thinking"

Attention teachers of statistics: Three exceptional professors at Duke University have just launched the first installment of a Coursera MOOC on Teaching Statistics: "Teaching Statistical Thinking: Part 1 Descriptive Statistics." JMP is the featured software of this course and is used in their analysis modules.

This course is designed with high school teachers in mind, but we think it is useful for any teacher of descriptive statistics. The course is organized around "core principle videos" that discuss the statistical content, along with additional videos discussing resources, pedagogy, and the analysis of data using JMP. Here is the basic outline of the course (from the course syllabus):

This class is taught in three units over five weeks

  • Getting started with data (1 week)
  • Single variable graphics and number summaries (1 week)
  • Graphics and number summaries describing the relationship between two variables (2 weeks)
  • Review (1 week)
  • For more information, or to join the course for free (it's not too late to join!), please visit the course site.
