Resources for Undergraduate Teachers

Consortium for the Advancement of Undergraduate Statistics Education (CAUSE) A national organization whose mission is to support and advance undergraduate statistics education in the four target areas of resources, professional development, outreach, and research.
Curriculum Guidelines The American Statistical Association endorses the value of undergraduate programs in statistical science, both for statistical science majors and for students in other majors seeking a minor or concentration. This document provides guidelines for development of curricula for such programs.
AMATYC/ASA Web-Based Distance Learning Program
Causality in Statistics Education Award The Causality in Statistics Education Award is aimed at encouraging the teaching of basic causal inference in introductory statistics courses. Donated by Judea Pearl, the prize carries a monetary award of $5,000 to a person or team that does the most to enhance the teaching and learning of causal inference in statistics.
Publications in Statistics Education
Using Statistics Effectively in Mathematics Education Research

General Sites

Exploring Data is an excellent collection of links and resources for teaching an introductory-level high-school, college, or AP course. This web site contains activities, worksheets, assessments, and data sets in both HTML and MS Word 2.0 format. There are also articles helpful to the teacher who has had little formal training in statistics. The web site is devoted mainly to data exploration, but also has curriculum support materials for other aspects of introductory statistics, such as elementary probability, the normal distribution, and inference.
GAISE reports
Guidelines for assessment and Instruction in Statistics Education Report.

The Chance Project has resources that emphasize using current news media as motivation for studying issues in probability and statistics. A highlight of the web site is the monthly Chance News (which now functions as a wiki), abstracting recent articles from newspapers and magazines with suggestions for pedagogical uses.
CAUSEweb, the Consortium for the Advancement of Undergraduate Statistics Education, has helpful resources for teaching an introductory statistics course, including class examples, labs, homework assignments, data sets, cartoons, songs, jokes, and quotes. This site also houses information about the biennial U.S. Conference on Teaching Statistics, hosted by The Ohio State University.
International Statistical Literacy Project provides resources for elementary and middle-school teachers to expand their knowledge of probability and statistics and for use in the classroom.
National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) Illuminations is a repository of lesson plans, online activities, and connections to the NCTM Standards.
Journal of Statistics Education Information Service contains links to several statistical education organizations, newsletters, discussion groups and the Journal of Statistics Education, as well as the JSE Dataset Archives.
ARTIST (Assessment Resource Tools for Improving Statistical Thinking) has field tested assessment inventory scales on specific topics in probability and statistics, as well as a searchable item database that allows teachers to build their own assessments.
Statistics Teacher Network is a newsletter published three times a year by the ASA/NCTM Joint Committee on Curriculum in Statistics and Probability for grades K-12.
Data Sources and Archives
DASL (Dataset and Story Library) is a collection of data sets and related documentation (stories) that may be searched by data subject or statistical technique. A great place to visit for class examples, this site is one of the web's premier resources for data intended for use in statistics instruction.
Chance Project Data Sets
U.S. Census Bureau
FedStats is billed as the "one-stop shopping source" for government data, with links to more than 70 federal agencies. Be sure to try the A to Z link.
Dr. B's Wide World of Web Data
WWW Virtual Library
UCLA Statistics
Data Sets and Case Studies
Rice Virtual Lab in Statistics houses an online statistics textbook, as well as java simulations and interesting case studies.
