A big tip of the hat to Justus Randolph for discovering
and helping to correct an annoying bug in the Stat Trek
code.
We are indebted to Ian Smith for alerting us to
a problem with the chi square calculator and for his practical
suggestions to fix the problem.
We are grateful to Chris Headlee ,
a math teacher at Marion Senior High School in Virginia,
for thoughtful feedback that greatly improved our discussion
