SLU Mathematics and Statistics Professors Present at the 2023 Joint Mathematics Meetings
Patti Frazer Lock (Mathematics) and Robin H. Lock (Statistics) presented their work at the Joint Mathematics Meetings in Boston in January.
Dr. Patti Frazer Lock gave an invited presentation on a panel on “Strategies for Enrollment and Inclusion in Mathematics.” Dr. Patti Frazer Lock and Dr. Robin Lock together gave an invited presentation on “Curriculum and the GAISE Report in Statistics.”
Patti Frazer Lock is Professor of Mathematics and Statistics at St. Lawrence University. She is a co-author on Statistics: Unlocking the Power of Data with Lock, Lock, Lock, Lock, and Lock, and is also a co-author on texts in Calculus, Applied Calculus, and Precalculus with Hughes-Hallett, McCallum, Connelly, et al. She has won numerous awards for her teaching and presentations. She has served on or chaired national committees on statistics and math education, and is currently the co-chair of the committee to revise the Guidelines for Assessment and Instruction in Statistics Education (GAISE). She is passionate about finding ways to help more students succeed in and enjoy introductory courses in statistics and mathematics.
Dr. Robin Lock is a Professor of Statistics at St. Lawrence. He is a Fellow of the ASA, past Chair of the Joint Mathematical Association of America-ASA Committee on Teaching Statistics, a member of the Guidelines for Assessment and Instruction in Statistics Education (GAISE) development committee, and the inaugural winner of the Waller Distinguished Teaching Career Award in 2014. He has led numerous national workshops for faculty to develop a more modern approach to teaching statistics and he is co-author of two textbooks, one of which has pioneered the use of simulation-based inference for teaching introductory statistics. He developed the Datasets and Stories section of the Journal of Statistics Education to help instructors share interesting data and applications for teaching statistics and wrote the Statistical Sports fan column for several years in Stats: The Magazine for Students of Statistics. In 2004, he was awarded both the Mu Sigma Rho Statistics Education Award for ``excellence in undergraduate or graduate statistical education at the institutional, regional, or national level" and the ASA's Statistics in Sports Section Significant Contributor Award.
