Studio Classroom

The studio classroom is a new environment for teaching statistics. There are 5 octagonal tables in the room with 4 computers per table. Students work in pairs on assignments provided over the Internet. The instructor serves as a facilitator and mentor rather than a lecturer. Four times in the semester, students have the opportunity to explore a mythical Planet X, using data taken from the planet to discover interesting facts about the aliens that live there. Students plan their own studies, gather data, analyze data, and write reports about what they find.
