Abstract: 

This is an introduction to the book on how to teach statistics to high school students. The authors suggest using your own data collection in weather charts and business stories. Another suggestion is to have students find erroneous uses of statistics and statistical reasoning in newspaper articles and to bring them into class for analysis.
