Chances Are...Making probability and Statistics Fun to Learn and Easy toTeach
 Picture
Publisher: Waco 1998.
New Prufrock Press Paperback Textbook; 4to 11" - 13" tall; 164 pages; For any beginner from the middle grades to early college. It's best to use it with gifted students in grades 4-8. This book serves as an introduction to probability -- the study of random behavior, and statistics -- the formal treatment of data. The purpose of the probability section of this book is to present an overview with the minimal amount of theory needed for students to be able to grasp the section on statistics which follows it. The study is simplified by working through clear examples and including some uncomplicated experiments. The purpose of the statistics portion of the book is to facilitate student examination of the most basic aspects of statistical theory in simple settings with very manageable numbers in such a way that they can see how the concrete results tie in with the abstract theory.

Topics covered in the book include Counting; Probabilities; Probability Distributions; Statistical Inference; Beginning Statistics; Sample Mean and Sample Proportion; Histograms and the Normal Distribution; Standard Deviation; Handling Data in Different Forms; and Statistical Inference II. In the Appendix is a Note to the Instructor, a Sample Syllabus, a List of Special Materials Needed for Experiments, and a Class Survey. There are also a Glossary and an Index. This appears to be a consumable workbooks, since reproduction is forbidden without written permission from the publisher; ISBN: 1882664353

Real Life Math Mysteries: A Kids' Answer to the Question What Will WeEver Use This For?'

Publisher: 1995.
New Prufrock Press Paperback 4to 11" - 13" tall; 106 pages; The problems in this book are real life applications of math principles used in the context of several different occupations. They were written not by mathematicians, but by individuals in the author's hometown of Marshfield, Wisconsin. Some of their occupations were horse breeder, police detective, lawyer, newspaper editor, mayor, airline pilot, dairy farmer, veterinarian, truck driver, and fast food restaurant manager. The problems are challenging, though the publisher says the book can be used with grades 3-12. Publisher information implies that it is best to use this with gifted students in the elementary grades, as even high school students won't find these problems easy. But they will show students the usefulness of their math skills in many different occupations, and this should help motivate them to learn -- even when it's hard.; ISBN: 1882664140
