Shmoop has introduced a new AP Statistics guide, which, it says, is guaranteed to fill your brain to the brim with all sorts of statistical data and know-how. As noted in the press announcement, statisticians are responsible for tracking professional baseball players' on-base percentages, analyzing the nets and grosses from feature films, and measuring the marketability of video games from region to region.

Shmoop AP Statistics guide can teach you:

--How a limitless supply of Skittles can help you spot patterns. 

--Why you can't conduct experiments on your younger siblings without knowing the appropriate confidence interval.

--How Facebook knows about your burning love for Bruce Springsteen.

--What statistical bias, mushrooms and chaperones have in common.

Shmoop is a digital curriculum and test prep company that makes fun, rigorous learning and teaching materials. Shmoop content is written by master teachers and Ph.D. students from Stanford, Harvard, UC Berkeley, and other top universities. Shmoop Learning Guides, Test Prep, SAT, and Teacher Editions balance a teen-friendly, approachable style with academically rigorous materials to help students understand how subjects relate to their daily lives. Shmoop offers more than 7,000 titles across the web, iPhone, Android devices, iPad, Kindle, Nook, and Sony Reader.
