----- Forwarded message from Rudy Wiegand -----

Last week it was suggested to a subscriber that they take an introductory
course in statistics. As a result, I'd like to make some comments concerning
this forum. In general A.P. teachers are assigned by school administrators.
Frequently, they have had a single college level statistics course--perhaps
none. It is unlikely that more than a few have had a relatively large
number of courses.

This accurately describes the situation where statistics is taught in
a mathematics department of a college. The biggest difference I find
between the college professors and the high school math. teachers is
that the latter have the humility to ask a question or ask for help!-)
