Résumé ### :

Teaching Statistics using JMP
Kraft, Volker
SAS Institute GmbH, Germany

The successful teaching of statistics in the classroom stands and falls with the instructor, but also depends heavily on the utility of the chosen toolset and the relevance of the examples used during lessons and workshops. JMP is software from SAS Institute aimed at Statistical Discovery, and this presentation shows how its unique philosophy and interactivity can help to foster and facilitate best practice when used in teaching. A variety of examples will be shown to illustrate the pedagogic advantage of JMP, and teaching resources which can allow the interactive exploration of statistical concepts by students are presented. JMP's Academic Program will also be reviewed, along with brief discussion of how advanced instructor needs, like customization and extension of statistical techniques and sharing of results, can also be easily addressed.
