Seminars for GTAs and Others: The Effects of Ambiguity

Dr. Adam Molnar, Dept. of Statistics 

Abstract: When deciding how to teach statistics, instructional experts make choices about topics and definitions. In many cases, those choices are universal, but not all. The first part of this talk examines situations where lack of consensus exists in courses taught at Oklahoma State. The second part of this talk describes lexical ambiguity, when a term has different meaning in statistics than in another context, such as mathematics or everyday life. For both lack of consensus and lexical ambiguity, there are actions that can reduce the negative effects of ambiguity; such actions will be described.
