## MathCEP Seminar10:10am - Vincent Hall 364Adventures with experiential and active learning Rina Ashkenazi, University of Minnesota I will share my attempts to include real world experiences and active learning in the actuarial mathematics curriculum. Those include a design of a project based course (MATH 4067W) that is instructed in collaboration with practicing actuaries, as well as the inclusion of small projects and in-class presentations in other, existing courses. |

## MathCEP Seminar10:10am - Vincent Hall 364The Chicago Guide to Writing about Numbers Book Discussion Journal Club People who work well with numbers are often stymied by how to write about them. Those who don't often work with numbers have an even tougher time trying to put them into words. For instance, scientists and policy analysts learn to calculate and interpret numbers, but not how to explain them to a general audience. Students learn about gathering data and using statistical techniques, but not how to write about their results. And readers struggling to make sense of numerical information are often left confused by poor explanations. Jane Miller, an experienced research methods and statistics teacher, gives writers the assistance they need. The Chicago Guide to Writing about Numbers helps bridge the gap between good quantitative analysis and good expository writing. Field-tested with students and professionals alike, this book shows writers how to think about numbers during the writing process. By providing basic guidelines for successfully using numbers in prose, The Chicago Guide to Writing about Numbers will help writers of all kinds clearly and effectively tell a story with numbers as evidence. |
