Title: Quiz: Are You a Bayesian?
Author(s): Alicia A Johnson*
Companies: Macalester College
Keywords: Bayesian education; undergraduate education

With the strong frequentist foothold in the undergraduate statistics curriculum, students are typically surprised to find out that another philosophy even exists. Thus a critical part of any introductory Bayes course is to frame the foundational theory (and its unique importance) within the broader context of statistical and data sciences. To this end, this talk will present a series of classroom exercises that encourage students to connect to their intuition while illustrating the power of the Bayesian philosophy.

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