Some Current Activities I am Involved In....

Case Study Approach Adopted For Introductory Statistics After two years of meetings and research, the Statistics faculty are proud to roll out a new approach to teaching Introductory Statistics at SFA. All of the material throughout the course is couched in a set of case studies. As students progress through a solution to each case, the necessary ideas from probability as well as other mathematical concepts are developed. However, students and faculty are always joined in "problem solving mode". We feel this more hands-on approach makes the introductory course have greater relevance and makes a more convincing argument for the relevance of statistical science. To go along with this new approach, the MTH 220 Case Study Manual was created. As lead author of this 120-page manual for the course, colleagues will continually suggest upgrades and additions that I will oversee. This should make our Case Study Manual dynamic document going forward. This is the most substantive review of the introductory statistics experience at Stephen F. Austin in over two decades.

A Return to Full Time Teaching With consulting responsibilities moved to my off-campus sole proprietorship, I will look to return to full-time teaching beginning in 2015. This gives me the opportunity to continue to be a part of the introductory statistics changes as well as a chance to revisit some upper division courses that other responsibilities had pushed away in past semesters. I'm looking forward to engaging again with students of all levels. Some of the greatest moments a faculty member can halve are one-on-one partnerships with students. With greater classroom responsibilities, the chance for meaningful interaction with students will increase. This is something I've always looked to do - find good students and make them better.

Mathematics Major Overhauled and Will Now Require Probability and Statistics After what seems like an insane number of years in revision, the Department of Mathematics and Statistics has unveiled a new and improved bachelors degree in Mathematics. All mathematics majors will now be required to complete MTH 359: Probability Models and MTH 360: Statistical Inference. MTH 359 replaces MTH 419 (see book at sidebar) and will focus more on modeling and tying theory to applications. MTH 360 replaces MTH 420 and will focus on data analysis after sound development of statistical procedures is presented. This six-hour requirement along with other modifications to the mathematics major should greatly enhance both the relevance and viability of the major. These changes are well overdue and the students of the future stand to benefit from a more broad view of the mathematical sciences.

SFA Volleyball Blog in its 6th Season In addition to my academic duties, I am also the public address announcer for SFA Volleyball... six years ago I launched www.sfavolleyblog.net. It has been great fun and I look forward to updating it over the winter and spring. During 2014, the club went undefeated in conference play and earned the top seed in the conference tournament. It is great to be a small part of the SFA Volleyball family and I sincerely thank all the coaches, players, athletics office staff, parents and fans for their support. This past year we began SFA VolleyBlog Radio through an internet radio portal that I own and have tied to the blog site. This was a huge success as we were able to provide fans with a unique way to follow Ladyjack Volleyball. As the blog was before it, SFA VolleyBlog Radio is the first of its kind in the Southland Conference.
