Help make Chance News the best resource possible
CAUSEweb would like to encourage new contributors to the Chance Wiki < [
] >. As you know, Chance News
provides synopses of recent news stories that contain interesting ideas from probability
and statistics, with the goal of providing examples and discussion questions for classroom
There are 3 levels at which people can make contributions. In increasing order of effort
required, these are:
(1) Send an e-mail to Bill Peterson < wpeterso(a)middlebury.edu > with a link to a
story that looks promising for inclusion.
(2) Even better, include a few sentences or short paragraph with a summary of the story
and/or pointers to the salient statistical issues. We can then edit it into a wiki post.
(3) Advanced level: Contribute a full Wiki post! This requires an account with editing
permissions, which we can set up on request. Once you have this, click on the edit button
for an existing story to see how it is constructed. It is not hard to pick up the wiki
syntax in this way.
Your help in providing up-to-date stories in any of these forms will be much appreciated!
