My Bass Connections Pathway

July 15, 2015

Jake Lennert participated in the Bass Connections project team, Creating Online Probability and Statistics Education for K-12 Teachers of Common Core.

“With the implementation of the Common Core curriculum across the nation, more statistics will be woven into mathematics courses, especially at the high school levels. Many math teachers do not have strong exposure to statistics. Our team set out to address that problem by making a free Coursera class on basic statistics oriented toward high school teachers. I got to plan, film, edit and publish videos where I explained different statistical lessons. It was an incredible experience knowing that I was able to have an impact on many peoples’ lives.”
