Stats, Math, Data and Sociology

Want some really interesting and topical statistics to use? Of course you do. This is a great site for math, stats, and sociology.

Seems like Zubin Jelveh is writing things that’d mix into Dan Meyer’s class pretty well.

He’s got everything from Pete Rose’s betting stats to the cost of pennies and the economic ramifications of their removal. I thought the stats dealing with the NY prostitution ring were really interesting as well but probably not suitable for most k12 classrooms. The things that’s good about these posts is that they’re all about numbers and stats but they have a real solid tie to our lives and culture. It makes room for some really passionate and interesting conversations and as a result a lot more interest in the numbers.

I can’t recall how I ended up here so apologies to whoever I stole the link from.

    Yeah, been a fan of Odd Numbers for awhile, though nothing’s found its way into my classes yet.
