Internship Experience

      Comments Off on Internship Experience

This fellowship has been a great opportunity for me to reflect upon my curriculum and how real-world scenarios are integrated into the curriculum. I’ve been working as an individual on the project with a single mentor. He has offered a variety of thoughts and applications of statistics for my classroom. He has been very knowledgeable and helpful, and is very interested in working together to apply the project in my classroom. The biggest challenge has probably been figuring out how to creatively integrate the project into my classroom. Too often have I found that the statistics is very straight laced and forward, but hard to apply real world scenarios without making it too complicated or dry for the students. Also it has been difficult to make the real world applications interesting and relatable to students. This project is great because many of my students are involved in athletics. It has also be great by showing me how I can integrate more technology and statistics software in the class.
