Workshop: Experiencing Statistics with TI-83 Graphing Calculators
Graphing calculators that provide statistical functions offer an alternative to computers in the study of statistics. Using data from a pilot study conducted at his community college, the presenter will compare the response of students using TI-83 graphing calculators with the response of students using computer software packages. Demonstrations of the use of the graphing calculators in the statistics curriculum will be presented. These include the use of the graphing calculator to explore probability distributions, to summarize data, and to perform statistical inference.

The workshop leader is Bob Pesut from Pellissippi State Technical Community College, Knoxville, Tennessee.

Length of workshop is two hours.

Schedule: University Center, June 2, 8:00-10:00
