The authors engage their students’ in two enjoyable statistics classroom activities. For one activity, “statistics races” we divide the class into teams and have competitive statistics races. We give them one statistics problem, and the first team to get the correct answer gets 3 points of extra credit, the second team 2 points extra credit and so on. The second activity is a statistical version of the tv game show “Jeopardy.” We will have anywhere from two to five categories of questions and from two to five point values for the questions, depending on the amount of time available. The teams then compete for the win and statistical bragging rights.

Authors who are presenting talks have a * after their name.
