Abstract

A major challenge in teaching statistics is to convey how statistics is used in solving real problems. Introductory courses often fail to provide students with a sense of how to apply statistical ideas. This paper will describe our experiences with a teaching approach in which students generate and analyse their own data by conducting a factorial experiment. We note our expectations, successes, and disappointments, as well as our recommendations.
