Online Resources for Non-Statisticians Teaching Statistics

Many teachers whose backgrounds are not in statistics must teach statistical concepts.  Non-statisticians face extra challenges in preparing for a statistics class, including uncertainty about content and pedagogy.  This article addresses this challenge by suggesting the use of CAUSEweb, an online repository of statistics education resources.  Methods are described to incorporate this resource into the planning and teaching of several difficult statistical concepts, including time series and hypothesis testing, using resources tailored to different application areas, such as biology, engineering, and chemistry.
