Subject: [isostat] Statistical blog - fun for students!
A friend just alerted me to a blog maintained by "The Numbers Guy," a columnist for the Wall Street Journal who writes about probability and statistics in the news. Although the WSJ online is available to subscribers only, the blog is available to all. It contains many great examples for the classroom, written in everyday English, such as the odds of a three-way tie in the TV game show "Jeopardy," understanding statistical significance in recent hormone studies, the Texas lottery, and more.
Please check out my recent Chronicle of Higher Education
article titled "Parents:
Why Your Children Need College Teachers With Tenure."
This is part of a broader effort to inform the public about the
meaning of tenure and academic freedom and advocate for their
support. Of course the AAUP does not have access to students and
their parents across the country.
Instead we invite faculty members to share the essay with their
students and encourage them, in turn, to distribute it to their
parents and friends.
If you would like to have a more elaborate conversation with a class
about tenure or academic freedom, you could also distribute our
1940 Statement and
1915 Declaration. We also
recently distributed an
important statement about why all
teaching faculty should have tenure.
We would also be happy to share ideas about lesson plans on academic
freedom and tenure.
