The author describes how a statistics professor uses humor in his classroom to decrease student anxiety towards statistics. He taps into students multiple intelligences and learning styles to force them to think in different ways. The article also describes how humor can lead to a more relaxed atmosphere in the classroom. You should also access the two resources on the side bar: "The ham it up how to" and "Funny but true."
