2011 AMATYC Wrap Up

November 14, 2011 at 4:35 pm Leave a comment

This year’s annual AMATYC conference in Austin just wrapped up and, as usual, was very inspiring. One topic that was presented several times was the idea of incorporating simulations to teach hypothesis testing. I have used this recently in my own statistics class, and I can report that it helps students to conceptually understand hypothesis testing in general and p-values as well.

I will be trying to recruit several AMATYC presenters to share their work by writing a guest blog. Stay tuned!
