Chance News reviews current issues in the news that use probability or statistical concepts. Its aim is to provide the gernal public a better understand of chance news as reported by the media and to allow teachers of probability and statistics courses to liven up their courses with current chance news.
From September 1992 to January 2005, an editor and a small number of regular contributors prepared Chance News. As of April 2005 Chance News will be a collaborative effort of its readers in the spirit of the very successful Wikimedia projects. These include a free Encyclopedia, a free newspaper, and free books . We will use the Wikimedia software that makes it easy for readers to add new chance items, or to modify an existing chance news item (hopefully improving it). As are the Wikmedia projects, Chance News will be freely available under the GNU Free Documentation License
Previous issues of Chance news as well as additional resources for a chance course can be found at the Chance website.
