There is a sample calendar below with links to the (1) the Warm-ups, (2) the Activity, & (3) the PRE or POST homework that is related to the Activity. Note the the warm-ups will sometimes be directly linked to the prior or subsequent in-class activity (e.g. *empirical rule*); however, other times, they are not directly related (e.g. *expected value*).

*Own Lesson* indicates that there is not a current MT StatPAL activity for this topic. Use one of your existing lessons or search https://www.causeweb.org.
