Rose Hoffmann, AP Statistics teacher at Catholic Memorial High School in Waukesha, WI sent the following note to the Revolution Analytics team:
In August 2010, my husband who is a statistician attended the American Statistical convention. Your company gave out the flying monkey with a black cape ... He gave me the monkey since it was my first year teaching AP Statistics. It became our class mascot, our "Stats monkey". My students even named it. It helped them unstress before the AP test.
We were thankful to Rose for sharing such a heartwarming story, and we sent the class some gifts, including "I love R" T-shirts. Yesterday, in recognition of World Statistics Day, the class sent us the following photo:
(You can see Chebyshev the monkey in the picture.) Thanks for sharing, Rose, and to the classmembers: thanks for celebrating World Statistics Day, and good luck in your AP Statistics test!
