About this Episode

Stephanie Casey describes her path from a mathematics teacher to a statistics teacher to a teacher educator who teaches people to teach statistics. She provides some helpful distinctions between mathematics and statistics, and shares the details about some projects she is working on. She reminds us that statistics involves numbers in a context, and recommends that people who teach statistics get familiar with statistics standards and get up-to-date with technology. Furthermore, she encourages the use of large data sets with multiple variables, and the use of simulation-based inference.
