Students Win Graduate Student Mentoring Award

Catherine Case, Steven Foti, and Douglas Whitaker were selected to receive the University of Florida’s Icubed Graduate Student Mentoring Award for the work they did with AP Statistics at PK Yonge in the 2013-2014 academic year. The Graduate Student Mentoring Award recognizes graduate students at the University of Florida who take time to help others succeed as graduate or undergraduate students or in K-12 classrooms (i.e., working with K-12 students and/or teachers). The award is particularly designed to acknowledge the mentoring contribution from the graduate students in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) disciplines, including SBE (Social, Behavioral and Economic) sciences.

Catherine, Steven, and Douglas are doctoral students specializing in Statistics Education under the mentorship of Dr. Tim Jacobbe. They will receive this award on October 28th at UF’s Graduate Student Research Day, where they will also be presenting.
