Lesson Plans and Resources for Math Test Prep.

My personal opinion after preparing students for the CAHSEE (California High School Exit Exam)--statistics seems neglected in test prep and there are always lots of questions in that discipline. Plus, as Not-really-a-math person (you can tell I love liberal arts), I can say that if there is an area of math I truly appreciate, it is statistics--not just analyzing data for teaching, but in examining our lives and our most interesting world. So there, I gave our math friends a sincere high five for improving our quality of life!
