A Writing-Intensive Statistics Course
Cline, Kelly S.
PRIMUS, v18 n5 p399-410 Sep 2008
We discuss an upper division applied statistics course that has been structured to satisfy our college's writing intensive requirements within the mathematics major. In this course, students complete two projects, performing both a statistical survey and a controlled experiment, and then write up their work on each project in a formal paper. After each paper, the students read a group of papers written by their peers and then critique and rank these papers. Next, the students meet in groups, having read the same papers, and together they must form a consensus about their group rankings. Finally, after analyzing and discussing several papers from their peers, the students revise their own papers. (Contains 1 table.)
