Welcome to Power In Numbers!

Every day, you are confronted with many numbers: you open your newspaper, turn on the news, buy your groceries, or balance your checkbook. And yet, if you are like many of us, you aren't familiar with all of the concepts that go into a statistic or a poll. Although in the media we constantaly face twisted math and tricky stats, a lot of us haven't been taught how to decipher truth from fiction. For this reason, Power in Numbers aims to educate people to become better consumers of numbers. In this site, we will:

  • introduce several approaches to numbers
  • explain how to extract truth from polls, probabilities, and statistics
  • and provide practical examples relating to sports, medicine, and everyday life
