Title: Promoting Active Learning With Maple Trees
Abstract: My summer research focused on understanding the importance and the design of model eliciting activities. In the beginning of the summer I researched the design process and the important elements that are a part of model eliciting activities. Then I partnered with Nature Up North to look for a problem that was relatable and local to St. Lawrence University students that I could use for a model electing activity. In the end I created a model eliciting activity for college level classes, and have been able to implement it in statistics classes here at St. Lawrence University.
