In discussing our teaching, we may focus on content, what we want our students to learn, or on pedagogy, what we do to help them learn. These two topics are of course related. In particular, changes in pedagogy are often driven in part by changing priorities for what kinds of things we want students to learn. It is nonetheless convenient to address content and pedagogy separately. Pedagogy, certainly the less specific of the two, is the topic of my second paper. This paper concerns content, and in particular contains one side of a conversation between a statistician and mathematicians who may find themselves teaching statistics.
