Newsletter for the Section on Statistical Education
Volume 11, Number 1 (Winter 2006)
Chance News reviews current issues in the news that use probability or statistical concepts. Its aim is to give the general public a better understanding of chance news as reported by the media and to allow teachers of probability or statistics to liven up their courses with current news. Issues from 1992 to 2004 are archived on the chance website (google chance) where you will also find other resources for teaching a probability or statistics course. Chance News has now become a wiki (google chance wiki). As a wiki you are encouraged to add your own contributions or to make additions or improvements to existing articles. As a measure of its success, Laurie Snell was recently adding an item which was interrupted by a tennis obligation. When he returned the article was beautifully completed.
