How We Are Lied to, Cheated, and Manipulated by Statistics...and Why You Should Care.

We are continually bombarded by charts, graphs, and quotes from various studies with the goal of influencing our opinions, health, or buying habits, yet we seldom know if we are being manipulated, deceived, and lied to by those presenting the data. It is imperative that we know how to interpret statistics and are aware of the numerous techniques that are used to distort and misuse numbers. Scammed by Statistics uses countless real examples to illustrate the good and evil of numbers while providing the knowledge to properly interpret statistical data, ask the right questions, and avoid bad decision-making. Readers will never again be able to read the news, watch TV, or read a magazine without a degree of healthy skepticism.

Supplement your child's math education by getting them to think about how the concepts they're learning are used in real life. There's no better way to really understand than to apply.
