My blog, A BestCase Scenario. Mostly about highschool statistics and modeling. A set of videos about probability I made for my highschool (not AP) statistics class. a page from Henri Piccioto on middle grades math. Activities and materials from SERP. Check it out! The Desmos Graping Calculator. Data Games. Victory though data analysis!
