One week until USCOTS

I interrupt my break from blogging to remind you that the 2021 U.S. Conference on Teaching Statistics (USCOTS) begins in just one week! I am eagerly looking forward to this virtual conference, which will feature many session on the theme of “Expanding Opportunities.” I hope that you’ll join me, my co-program chair Kelly McConville, and hundreds of other teachers of statistics at USCOTS from Mon June 28 – Thur July 1.

Taking a break
