Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0198572247, Paperback)This volume takes a positive spin on the field of statistics. Statistics is seen by students as difficult and boring, however, the authors of this book have eliminated that theory. Teaching Statistics: A Bag Of Tricks, brings together a complete set of examples, demonstrations and projects that not only will increase class participation but will help to eliminate any negative feelings toward the area of statistics.

"Part I of the book presents a large selection of activities for introductory statistics courses and has chapters such as 'First week of class' - with exercises to break the ice and get students talking; then descriptive statistics, linear regression, data collection (sampling and experimentation), probability, inference, and statistical communication. Part II gives tips on what works and what doesn't, how to set up effective demonstrations and examples, how to encourage students to participate in class and to work effectively in group projects. A sample course plan is provided. Part III presents material for more advanced courses on topics such as decision theory, Bayesian statistics and sampling."--Jacket.
