MAC3 and Statistics
The curriculum and activities we are planning for a math/biology linked learning community will give students the opportunity to make a connection to real activities outside the classroom. In our shared activities, “Sound Science,” students will engage in meaningful "active learning" during "lecture" time as opposed to the passive learning of listening to a lecture and taking notes.
Psychology and Statistics
As part of a MAC project at Columbia College, the faculty are Incorporating inferential statistics into everyday psychological life by using two assignments as added-value assignments. The assignments are being implemented into
Psychology 1 (General Psychology) & Math 2 (Elements of Statistics).
Going With the Flow: Stream Statistics
