Imagine Magazine, a youth-focused journal by Johns Hopkins's Center of Talented Youth, invited me to contribute an article in celebration of statistics. I try to convey the fun and joy of working with numbers and charts.
You can read it here, starting on p. 22. While you're at it, the rest of the magazine is really great too, and I hope we're able to influence at least a few youngsters to take up math-stats as a career.
Please forward to kids and teachers!
