Chance News reviews current issues in the news that use probability or statistical concepts. Its aim is to give the general public a better understanding of chance news as reported by the media and to allow teachers of probability and statistics courses to liven up their courses with current news. From 1992 to 2004, Chance News was written by a small number of regular contributors. These are archived on the Chance Website where you will also find other resources for teaching a probability or statistic course.
