Great book for AP Stats!

As an AP Statistics teacher, these articles really help students understand how statistics is used in the real world. Nice follow up questions at the end of each article.

No other book gets students as excited about statistics

I've used examples from this book in every research design, evaluation or statistics course I have ever taught. The essays are compelling -- how a statistician beats a parking ticket, how the whales are counted, the biggest health experiment ever conducted. I actually see students eyes light up and they catch the joy and excitement of detection, wit, thinking outside the box, the humility of guessing rather than knowing. The book is a sheer pleasure. Bravo to the authors.
