The demonstrations and examples in this book are presented as separate modules so that the reader can easily use any subset of them. This chapter illustrates how we integrate our demonstrations and other teaching material into a non-calculus- based semester-long introductory course. We provide lesson plans that include an outline of the course material and student activities for each of 26 lecture periods of 75 minutes each. We make no claims for the optimality of this syllabus; rather, we include it to show how class-participation activities can be inserted into a standard course. In addition, we sketch an alternative list of activities for each week of a 15-week semester.

Keywords:   Activity planning, introductory statistics, lesson plan, course syllabus, teaching statistics
