Today, I talk with Jim Frost, best-selling Statistics author and the wildly popular blogger at statisticsbyjim.com, about how to make Statistics engaging, exciting, and more relatable for Introductory Statistics students.

We discuss:
  • How Statistics research differs from how math is taught in the classroom
  • The importance of teaching why students need statistics and why specific rules apply
  • The chaotic nature of making sense of data in real life
  • The benefits of teaching Statistics without an emphasis on equations
  • How his book and blog can help teachers inspire their students to love math
