The purpose of this SIGMAA is to facilitate the exchange of
ideas about teaching statistics, the undergraduate
statistics curriculum and all other issues related to
providing students with effective and engaging encounters
with statistics in their courses of study. We also
hope to foster increased understanding of statistics among
members of the MAA, promote the discipline of statistics
among students, and work cooperatively with other
organizations to encourage effective teaching and learning
The SIGMAA Stat Ed awards the Robert V. Hogg Award and the Dexter C. Whittinghill III Award at SIGMAA Stat Ed Business meeting at the Joint Mathematics meetings.
Nominations Open for the Robert V. Hogg Award for Excellence in Teaching Introductory Statistics
The Hogg Award provides recognition to an individual who has shown both excellence and growth in teaching introductory statistics at the college level. This award is presented annually at the Joint Mathematics Meetings. Nomination packets should be submitted to Judith Canner, Chair of the Award Committee, at email@example.com.
The winner of the Hogg Award will have been teaching introductory statistics at the college level for 3 to 15 years and hold active membership with the MAA. Nominations of faculty coming from a mathematics background are especially encouraged, although all eligible candidates are encouraged to apply. The deadline for submitting nomination packets is September 30; nominations are held in consideration for 3 years, but updated nomination packets are encouraged.
Awarded at the 2021 JMM
Congratulations to the 2021 Hogg Award winner Mine Çetinkaya-Rundel!
The Dexter C. Whittinghill III award for best presentation at the 2020 JMM went to Albert Schueller!
