Dr. Larson Ng (lng@hawaii.edu) Ph.D.  Educational Specialist  College of Education  University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa “You like stats or couple slaps?”

The following presentation will share my experiences of using Pidgin in the teaching of statistics in graduate school.  I will recollect how Pidgin has helped in alleviating stress/anxiety due to the difficult subject matter and contributed to the retention of statistical concepts as a result of it being taught in the first language for the majority of my local students. Bio: I was born and raised in what I call the Kalihi Triangle.  After graduating through the our Hawai‘i public school system, I am currently working as part of the graduate faculty at the College of Education at the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa.
