 CHANCE - J. Laurie Snell, Mathematics Dept., Dartmouth College Materials designed to help teach a "Chance" course or a more standard introductory probability or statistics course. A Chance course is a case study quantitative literacy course designed to make students more informed and critical readers of current news items that use probability and statistics, as reported in daily newspapers. This site contains: Chance News, a monthly newsletter with abstracts of articles from current newspapers and journals, and suggestions for discussion questions for class use, with an archive; video lectures and audio discussions of Chance topics; syllabi of previous Chance courses and articles that have been written about them; a Teacher's Guide and other materials useful for teaching a Chance course; and links to related Internet sources for teaching a probability or statistics course. The Chance team of developers includes: J. Laurie Snell and Peter Doyle of Dartmouth College, Joan Garfield of the University of Minnesota, Tom Moore of Grinnell College, Bill Peterson of Middlebury College, and Ngambal Shah of Spelman College. more>> Gallery of Data Visualization - Michael Friendly, York University Examples of the best and worst of statistical graphics, from what is arguably the best statistical graphic ever drawn, to the current record-holder for the worst. more>> HyperStat Online - David M.

Elementary calculations of mean and standard variation suffice to summarize a large, finite, normally-distributed dataset; the field of Statistics exists since data are not usually so nicely given. If we do not know all the elements of the dataset, we must discuss sampling and experimental design; if the data are not normal we must use other parameters to summarize them, or resort to nonparametric methods; if multiple data are involved, we study the measures of interaction among the variables. Other topics include the study of time-dependent data, and the foundations necessary to avoid ambiguity or paradox. Computational methods (e.g. for curve-fitting) are of particular importance in applications to the sciences and engineering as well as financial and actuarial work. History; applications and related fields and subfields; textbooks, reference works, and tutorials; software and tables; other web sites with this focus. more>> Statistics Every Writer Should Know - Robert Niles; Niles Online Numbers can't talk, but they can tell you as much as human sources can.
