### Statway

The Journey Continues

The Need for Statway

For every FOUR MATD 0370 students who continue to MATH 1342 (Elementary Statistics), ONE passes

• This means for many students, Elementary Algebra is not good enough preparation for Elementary Statistics.
• Intermediate Algebra does not provide any additional benefit to these students.
The Need for Statway
• Statway teaches math in a Statistics context right from the beginning. Students practice analyzing data and writing complete analytical solutions instead of simply practicing more quantitative calculations.
• MATD 0385, though currently filling this role for non-TSI complete students, is more suited to preparing students for MATH 1332.
• Statway has the potential to work a lot better for our humanities and social science students and this makes it worth trying!
Options for offering Statway
• MATH 1342 Option

Semester 1: 4 hours MATD “Math for Stats I”

Semester 2: MATH 1342 (Elementary Statistics) +1 hour MATD “Math for Stats II”

• Unique Needs Option

Semester 1: 1 hour MATH “Descriptive Statistics” + 3 hours MATD “Math for Stats I”

Semester 2: 2 hours MATH “Inferential Statistics” + 2 hours MATD “Math for Stats II”

1. MATH 1342 Option
• MATH 1342 and a 1 hour MATD (“Math for Stat II”) for any additional developmental topics to support learning statistics, whose prerequisite is…
• New 4 hour developmental course, “Math for Stat I”, to cover the developmental math topics from Statway (with assumption that students from Math for Stat I will all continue to a Statway 1342 section)

First: 4hours MATD

Second:3hours MATH 1342 + 1hour MATD

2. Unique Needs Option
• Creation of two new College Level courses that split the content of MATH 1342
• to be paired with MATD each semester (Math for Stat I & II):

First: 3 hours MATD + 1 hour MATHSecond: 2 hours MATD + 2 hours MATH

Advantage: Statway Materials can be used as provided

MATD “Math for Stats I”

Course Description (tentative; to be split for the Unique Needs Option):

The first in a two-semester course, to be paired with a designated MATH 1342 section in the second semester. This course surveys a variety of mathematical topics needed to prepare students for the statistical reasoning and data analysis needed in MATH 1342. It also covers most THEA mathematics topics. Topics include: arithmetic with rational numbers; linear models; evaluating expressions and formulas; rates, ratios, and proportions; percentages; solving equations and inequalities; data interpretations including graphs and tables; verbal, algebraic and graphical representations of functions; exponential models; and an introduction to other models, including quadratic, logarithmic, and/or rational.

Questions

• Do we want to move forward and commit to pilot the course?
• This would be a two-year commitment, with the option to pull out after one year if deemed necessary
• Do we want to go the MATH 1342 or the Unique Needs Route?
• Do we want the prerequisite to include High School Algebra II?
