### Workshop on Teaching Introductory Statistics Sessions 6 & 7: Using Technology in the Classroom, Parts I & II

Roger Woodard, North Carolina State University Ginger Holmes Rowell, Middle Tennessee State University

Medical College of Wisconsin in Milwaukee

July 10-13, 2006

• Not to be used for the sake of using technology
• Allows students to focus on interpretation, not mechanics
• Helps students analyze data, visualize concepts, and understand abstract ideas
• Examples Include:
• Computer software, graphing calculators, applets, websites, response systems, etc.
Using Technology
• To help avoid using technology just to use technology consider the Triadic Approach to Technology Assessment

Activity

Technology

Outcome

Desired Outcome

Visualize shape of binomial distribution for different values of n and p.

Recognize convergence of relative frequency to distribution function.

Select Activity

Simulate a binomial experiment 10, 100 & 1000 times.

Vary n and p.

Select Technology

10 Simulations – Low Tech

1000 Simulations – High Tech (Computer Simulation)

An Example: Using Technology
Using Technology Sessions
• Outline
• Part I: Analyze Data
• Demo statistical software
• Time for project work
• Part II: Conceptual Understanding
• Visualization through simulation
• Software, Calculator, Applets
Technologies for Analysis
• Statistical Software Packages
• Internet-based (Java) Analysis Tools
• StatCrunch (www.statcrunch.com)
• Others
• Graphing Calculators
• Computer Response Systems
• “Clickers”
• TI Navigator
Statistical Software Packages
• Lots of choices – even for intro stat Look for
• Easy to use – intuitive interface
• Helps students focus on concepts and interpretation
• Good price (i.e. student versions)
• Encourage students to
• Learn how to use the help menus and
• Figure out some things on their own
• Using technology to create reports of their analysis
• Importing graphs into Word/PowerPoint
• Exposure to “standards” for writing in their discipline
• When grading reports, develop a rubric
• Encourages better reports
