Great Lakes Isolated Statisticians
One result of the Great Lakes Isolated Statistician's Meeting
held in Oberlin, Ohio on April 27-28
was to recognize the difficulties associated with the absence
of local statisticians with whom to discuss topics such as
the merits of various textbooks,
sources of data for class projects and activities,
the difficulty in being recognized
for statistical consulting by our colleagues, etcetera.
In an effort to increase the ability for us to communicate with each other
electronically, we present a first pass
at the Great Lakes Isolated Statisticians Homepage.
This homepage is intended to be a link
to the "statistician down the hall" for academic statisticians
who practice their craft in relative isolation.
This homepage is currently quite bare.
If you can think of other topics that ought to be included,
please indicate them.
If you have additional information that would improve the information
presented here. please send it along!
if you are an academic statistician in this region,
we want to include a mini biography of you in our directory
that will allow others to find you
as the "statistician down the hall" they seek.
of academic isolated statisticians
in the Great Lakes region.
- A map that shows the
locations of other isolated statisticians.
Perhaps someone is a neighbor you didn't know!
- Links to other sites
that are good starting points for finding information useful for statisticians.
- Descriptions of textbooks
that may help you find the appropriate choice for an undergraduate course.
- An annotated list of
that might be appropriate selections for your institution
or as special gift ideas for aspiring undergraduate students interested
in pursuing statistics in graduate school.
- Events of interest to isolated
statisticians in this region.
- Links to data
available on the Internet.
Many of these links include descriptions of ways to use the data
in teaching statistics.
- Descriptions of
projects and activities
suitable for the classroom or outside of class.
Projects that depend on a particular dataset are linked above.
These projects might involve students producing/finding their own data,
or ideas involving computer simulation.
