Session Abstract

The adoption of the graphics calculator in the statistics classroom has implications for both what we teach and how we teach statistics in the 21st century. In this session both of these themes will be addressed. The presentations will not only demonstrate innovative and practical ways of including the graphics calculator in the classroom, but also focus on the implications of this technology for curriculum and assessment.
