April 24: CCSF, BCC and DVC are applying for the opportunity to work with Myra Snell on accelerating their developmental math sequences through the creation of StatPath classes. This is exciting news for the more colleges that experiment with acceleration models, the more evidence we can draw from as to their effectiveness. However, the true gift is the cross-polonizing that will occur between different StatPath courses.
Mar 18: Thank you to the four colleges who took part in our first StatPath conversation! Our FAQ page has been updated. Two action groups formed. Evergreen and BCC will look into Algebra for Statistics textbooks but will also look into exploratory data analysis textbooks that they can supplement with algebra activities. Cabrillo and DVC are going to look into our LMC StatPath curriculum.
Mar 11: There is now an Algebra for Statistics FAQ page to record questions and responses for our faculty collaboration.
