## Teaching Statistics: Resources for Undergraduate InstructorsA recent survey showed that for every student taking a statistics course in a statistics department, more than three take such a course in a mathematics department, but many math departments have no statistician on staff. This instructor's manual was originally intended as a companion volume to math-teacher workshops that addressed the issue, but it may also be helpful to experienced teachers of statistics at the undergraduate or secondary level. It includes classic and original articles on various aspects of statistical education as well as descriptions of innovative projects. The text has no subject index. c. Book News Inc. |
