suggestions for new research in the area. We are including a report of the first two conferences focussing on these areas, and summaries of the papers presented in STRL2. This issue concludes with a bibliography on variation, a short paper, and sections formerly in SERN: summaries of recent dissertations and research papers, information about past and forthcoming conferences. In this sense it is not very different from recent issues of SERN, which had already begun to include contributions which would have been suitable for inclusion in a journal. Some of the material in this issue had already been prepared for the newsletter. We intend to increase the number of high quality refereed papers as SERJ develops. We hope all IASE members will be interested in this new IASE publication, since its success can only be achieved with the help of all those who are committed to improving the quality of statistics education through research. Since the aim of the Statistics Education Research Journal is to provide a chance for all statistics education researchers to present their works and exchange their ideas, we invite you to send papers of potential interest, summaries of your theses and papers, and information about statistics education conferences to one of the editors. Details of the form in which submissions should be made are given on our web page . CARMEN BATANERO and FLAVIA JOLLIFFE

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
