Because many colleges are having their students work from home, we are making our Bootcamp Courses free through the end of June. If you are needing a corequisite course for your students, you can send them to us and we will get them up to speed. You can enroll in any of our courses as well, so you can see how your students are doing. All courses are at courses.mathtv.com.
I think our Stat Prep book is the best book on the market to get students ready for statistics. But instructors are having a hard time finding a place for it in their curriculum; they don't have a course with Stat Prep in the title. The book is really a Quantitative Literacy book, but when instructors look at it from that perspective the topic list doesn't match the topic list they are familiar with. But the book teaches quantitative literacy, number sense, and critical thinking better than any book I have seen.
Here is my question: How do we find that group of instructors that can adjust their curriculum to fit this book into it? We know this is the best book for teaching quantitative literacy while getting students ready for statistics. How do we get instructors to take a chance on it when they don't have a Stat Prep course and their topic list for Quantitative Literacy doesn't match the list of topics in the book?
PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT I was scheduled to speak this weekend in Sacramento at a regional mathematics conference. The conference was cancelled because of the Coronavirus. So I am doing the same presentation I was scheduled to do, but I'm doing it live, online, on the dates and times below. This conference cancellation has actually opened up new possibilities. Because I have been using the Zoom app for some business meetings this year, I realized it can be used for presentations as well. As more conferences are cancelled, this will be a good way to keep our professional development going. So, click on the links below to sign up for one of these presentations, and we will see what happens! If this goes well, I will do my other presentations online as well.
