Connecting with Basic Knowledge

Mary Parker and Collen Hosking, Austin Community College

Presented at USCOTS May 30, 2015

What prior knowledge and experiences are we assuming our students have that some of them don't have? Can we find some quick, meaningful, memorable ways to address these? The goal of this session is to help you identify some of these concepts and topics you have noticed among your students and, in a small group, make a plan for addressing at least one of those. We will draw on our experiences with Statway and show how we have used that to enhance all of our statistics classes.
