## Program Details

Connect Master Business Statistics is a digital-first product appropriate for the introductory undergraduate course. This product breaks free from the limitations and constraints of a traditional textbook’s structure and format. It uses digital adaptive software to assess how students learn, in turn providing them with an enhanced learning experience. This product is designed for instructors with technology-driven courses including hybrid, online, and those employing the flipped classroom model.

### About the Author

Dane McGuckian

Dane McGuckian is a Senior Statistics Instructor at Florida International University
(FIU) and the founder of STATSprofessor.com. Dane began his career as a high school
teacher at Sagemont Upper School in Weston, Florida. While in high school, Dane had no
plans to attend college and completed only the bare minimum requirements in order to
graduate. After a year-long struggle in the job market lacking a higher education, Dane
reluctantly enrolled at a local community college in Florida, Broward Community College
(BCC). There, Dane found that the discipline of mathematics was, for him, a natural fit.
Dane ended up at Florida International University where he graduated Summa Cum Laude with
a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics.

After his initial high school teaching position, Dane decided to return to the community
college where he discovered his aptitude for Mathematics as an instructor. While teaching
at BCC, Dane subsequently earned his Master of Science in Statistics from Florida
International University. Dane was hired on as an instructor at FIU in 2006.

During his first semester of teaching at FIU, Dane began independent work creating a
series of instructional videos on statistics for his students’ use. In 2011, this little
side project spun into the creation of his website, STATSprofessor.com, which is now
available to statistics students across the country.
