Description: 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.
