Maria Andersen (www.teachingcollegemath.com), recently gave a talk at IGNITE Great Lakes. Please take a moment to watch her talk. I was there, so I can personally tell you that it's worth your time to watch. Thanks!
When I got this Histogram Match-Up Activity, I liked the concept, but the instructions weren't very clear for the students. I've cleaned it up some (again, my modifications), and am posting it here.

CAUSEWeb really does put out some great activities for teaching Introductory Statistics, such as Histogram Sorting Using Cooperative Learning. In fact, they have an entire Statistics Activity Webinar Series that they do regularly. I was told that this particular activity would easily be modified for the college classroom (where we sometimes don't have as much time). My modification is below. The file includes a student instruction sheet, three pages of student 'cards' and three pages of solutions for the instructor. Enjoy, and make sure to check out the CAUSEWeb Statistics Activity Webinar Series! Histogram Sort
I refer to this diagram all the time for my online classes. I'm tired of digging through months and months of e-mails just to find it, so I am posting it here!
NOIR stands for Nominal, Ordinal, Interval, Ratio, and is a game to help students distinguish between the four different levels of measurement. I had been working on this game all week, and I finally had time for my students to play it in class on Thursday. After the game, they filled out a review form for the game. I have already tweaked the game slightly based on their feedback as the cards were not originally numbered, so it was very hard for the answers to be checked. The students wanted the definitions on the game board somewhere, but I think…
Here are a couple of popular YouTube videos that I have selected to help you relax this weekend.

I had an Algebra Games Day with my students on Friday, July 29, to try out a few of my new Algebra games (as well as Mark Clark's exponent sort). The students filled out feedback forms and I intend to update this post with some of their comments about the games in the next few days. and the feedback is now located here: bit.ly/algebragames. For now, enjoy the pictures! Freaking Functions! (file) What the Factor! (file) Slope Game (now called 'Slopes and Ladders') (file) Mark Clark's Exponent Sort (file) See the full gallery on Posterous
