A war is on in probability and statistics: between the objective approach, a.k.a. frequentist or orthodox statistics, and the subjective approach, a.k.a. Bayesian statistics. For my sins, I find myself fascinated by fields where the unorthodox view is correct, so I made and taught an undergraduate course on "Bayesian Inference and Reasoning." I will illustrate, with many examples, several hopefully transferrable aspects of the course.

Practicing basic computational skills and developing conceptual understand are two of the many things that happen in the math classroom. Using videos and online homework to 'flip the classroom' is a beginning, but more can be done to promote higher order thinking skills. The University of Minnesota is in its sixth year of a redesign of its PreCalculus curriculum that 'flips the formula'. Instead of the professor beginning with the generalization and passing the formula to students who solve specific cases, students now begin with specific cases and develop algorithms for general solutions
