Statway Modules.

The modules Statway are composed of lessons to use in class. These lessons are, almost exclusively, activities. These exist in various versions. This page has only the Student handouts. If you are a mathematics or statistics instructor at a college, I can send you a link from which you can see instructor handouts. Please email me, identify yourself and your college, and remind me of where we met, and I will send you additional information.
