I have been pulling out old data sets for my new data blog. I really like this one on smoking and cancer. It's a great set to remind students that when comparing sets of data you should use similar scales.

Plinko is is a great way to demonstrate the binomial theorem. I love the video cuz I just want to tell them "drop it in the middle" but the results could also spark a good discussion about the nature of probability. And on this post there are some other good resources too. Thanks to Lindsay Novak for this one

As it always goes, there are lots of examples of data that come out whenever there is a mass shooting. This one piqued my interested because when I looked at it it seemed to be way to outrageous but as it turns out it's true. Check out the link for even more data analysis. Though be a bit cautious using this as the topic is sensitive.
