The American Statistician
The American Statistical Association
Statisticians and others who teach statistics at liberal arts colleges enjoy opportunities and encounter difficulties that are unique to the liberal arts setting. In July 1987 a small group of statisticians participated in a workshop at which discussion focused on three major issues: statistics in the liberal arts, the teaching of statistics, and the role of a statistician at a liberal arts college. By summarizing our discussion in this report we hope to provide support for statisticians at liberal arts colleges and to initiate discussion directed toward giving statistics education a prominent position in the liberal arts curriculum.
