Practical Significance Episode 5 | What a Year! Celebrating the Class of 2021

The Class of 2021 and its teachers had a year no one could have imagined. Adaptable, determined, and resilient are just a few adjectives often attributed to students and educators this year. For our May podcast, hosts Donna LaLonde and Ron Wasserstein welcome to the show three graduates to be and two [very busy!] faculty members.
The following degree candidates reflect on this unprecedented year, share their favorite classes and experiences, offer advice for academic success, and tell us what’s next for them: Yuyu (Ruby) Chen, Master of Science, Biostatistics, New York University; Emma Godfrey, Bachelor of Arts, Mathematics, Pomona College; Sallie M. Yassin, Master of Science, Biostatistics, New York University.
Additionally, Miles Ott, associate professor of statistical and data sciences at Smith College, and Amy Hogan, who teaches mathematics and statistics at Brooklyn Technical High School, consider the challenges of teaching during the pandemic—what’s worked, strategies they’ll use going forward, and advice they traditionally share with their graduates. 
And you won’t want to miss Ron’s traditional “Top 10,” as he offers up the top 10 signs you won’t be graduating this year.
Listen in as these ASA members relay how they ‘Zoomed’ through 2021 and join us in celebrating this milestone moment for Ruby, Sallie, and Emma.
