Amy Froelich is a member of the Department of Statistics. She completed a B.S. in Secondary Mathematics Education from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and taught high school mathematics at United Township High School in East Moline, Illinois. She completed her Ph.D. in Statistics also from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and has been an Assistant Professor at Iowa State University since August 2000.
Froelich is heavily involved in teaching and a large component of her research is dedicated to statistics education. One of her research areas in statistics education is the statistics curriculum for pre-service and in-service teachers. In this area she has worked on enhancements to the introductory course and to the calculus-based probability and mathematical statistics courses for pre-service teachers. For in-service teachers, she developed a new course (Stat 410) to give teachers better content knowledge appropriate for teaching the dual-credit introductory statistics course or AP Statistics. Her other research areas include educational measurement and psychometrics.
