Jack Marley-Payne

Jack Marley-Payne is the director of research at Financial Life Cycle Education, a Manhattan-based nonprofit which has created a math-based financial literacy course for high school students. Marley-Payne is developing new pedagogical materials on topics in statistics, and led us through a new workshop that begins with a few fundamentals about probability, then shifts into an explanation of and exercises about p-values. Included throughout the session are challenges and discussion questions about how p-values may be used in context – and how differing contexts may shift our initial instincts about how much information they can give us.
