Welcome  – From the Editor

Welcome to the MERLOT Statistics Portal, a joint venture with the Consortium for the Advancement of Undergraduate Statistics Education (CAUSE). This portal is a resource for anyone teaching statistics.

MERLOT Statistics/CAUSE are involved in many projects to improve statistics teaching. One such project is the U.S. Conference on Teaching Statistics (USCOTS), sponsored by CAUSE.

Showcase

The site includes guided interdisciplinary labs for first and second courses in statistics.  As stated on the homepage for this site, "This site presents workbook-style, project-based material that emphasizes real world applications and conceptual understanding. This material is designed to give students a sense of the importance and allure of statistics early in their college career. By incorporating many of the successful reforms of the introductory statistics course into a wide range of more advanced topics we hope that students in any discipline can realize the intellectual content and broad applicability of statistics."
