My name is Judy, I teach Elementary Statistics at Miramar College in San Diego.  I'm always looking for topical current data and interesting case studies, along with math jokes.

Hello Judy and welcome to the community.  We're plannng on putting together a math section here in the community soon.  So keep checking back (no date as of yet).  I taught stats for many years (in the psychology department) and here's my favorite joke (used it to explain variance and standard deviation):

 

Three hunters spotted a rabbit.

Hunter #1 took took the first shot and missed to the left of the rabbit.

Hunter #2 shot next and he missed to the right of the rabbit.

Hunter #3 yelled, "Got it!"

 

Smiley Happy

 

See you around the community!

Hi Michael - Thanks for the welcome! I love the joke, will definitely spring it on my students this coming semester. I'm looking forward to hearing from other instructors and sharing information. I especially love math and statistics jokes and cartoons. Judy
