Committee Charge
1/28/2011To stimulate effective change in undergraduate statistical education, particularly in the majority of institutions where the department of mathematics bears the primary responsibility for the teaching of statistics.

The Committee should examine and make recommendations concerning:

  • individual course offerings;
  • teaching practices;
  • faculty qualifications;
  • course sequences in support of various options;
  • use of computers in undergraduate statistics courses;
  • connections with other departments that use or teach statistics;
  • statistics requirements for undergraduate majors;
  • statistical education of elementary and secondary teachers and;
  • impact on undergraduate curricula of improvement in pre-college statistical education.

    In order to undertake this broad agenda, the Committee should consider a variety of activities, including studies to gather relevant information, panels, or speakers at professional meetings, articles in professional newsletters or periodicals; campus visits; identification of exemplary programs and materials; development of a comprehensive report with specific recommendations.

    The Committee is urged to seek foundation support for its work, with assistance from the MAA central office.
