SAS is widely used for both teaching and research in universities around the world. As part of the SAS Global Academic Program team, one of the questions I’m frequently asked by those teaching is “does SAS have any materials such as slide decks, data sets, or exercises they can make available?” The answer is yes!
SAS offers teaching materials to college and university instructors who are teaching courses to degree seeking students or training internal university employees. These materials are free of charge. They may be used in whole or in part, so whether you are looking to create a single activity, a for-credit course, or even a sequence of courses building toward a degree, these materials can help support your content.
Teaching materials include:
• Chapter-by-chapter instructor notes
• PowerPoint slides for easily presenting the material to your students
• Course data sets for demonstrating the concepts
• Practice exercises to enhance student comprehension
There are over 80 courses to choose from. To help you identify which materials might best support your courses, I’ve listed some of the most frequently requested teaching materials.
If you are teaching programming courses, I recommend the following teaching materials:
• SAS Programming: Essentials
• SAS Programming: Data Manipulation Techniques
If you are teaching Statistics and want your students to learn how to use SAS as part of the course, I recommend the following teaching materials:
• Statistics 1: Introduction to ANOVA, Regression, and Logistics Regression
• Statistics 2: ANOVA and Regression
If you are teaching Data Mining or Text Mining and use SAS as part of your course, I recommend the following teaching materials:
• Applied Analytics Using SAS Enterprise Miner
• Decision Tree Modeling
• Text Analytics with Text Miner
