ABSTRACT

The new online Against All Odds (AAO) series is guaranteed to breathe life into your introductory statistics course. Picking up were the original AAO left off in the 1980s, the new series maintains the same emphasis on 'doing' statistics. Video modules take students on location to where people from all walks of life are using statistics in their work, while online materials allow students to practice and review what they have learned. This paper introduces sample materials that include descriptions of a video segment, interactive applets and activities designed to actively engage students, and exercises that involve realworld data and use of technology.
