Graph Predictions for Position, Velocity and Acceleration part of Just in Time Teaching:Examples
Graphical Just-in-Time-Teaching questions for use before classes in which students explore position, velocity and acceleration graphs.

Histogram Sorting Using Cooperative Learning part of Cooperative Learning:Examples
Intended as an early lesson in an introductory statistics course, this lesson uses cooperative learning methods to introduce distributions. Students develop awareness of the different versions of particular shapes (e.g., different types of skewed distributions, or different types of normal distributions), and that there is a difference between models (normal, uniform) and characteristics (skewness, symmetry, etc.).

Body Measures: Exploring Distributions and Graphs Using Cooperative Learning part of Cooperative Learning:Examples
This lesson is intended as an early lesson in an introductory statistics course. The lesson introduces distributions, and the idea that distributions help us understand central tendencies and variability. Cooperative learning methods, real data, and structured interaction emphasize an active approach to teaching statistical concepts and thinking.
