Presented by: Neil Hatfield, Leah Hunt, Ethan Wright, Gonghao Liu, Xigang Zhang, & Zeyuan (Primo) Wang (Penn State University)


For the past four years, teams of Penn State statistics and data science undergraduates have spent the summer and fall developing apps for teaching statistical concepts. Their work has culminated in over 60 apps as part of the Book of Apps for Statistics Teaching (BOAST). This webinar will share some details of the project and give some of the students the opportunity to highlight some of the newest apps they have developed.
