I have grown a bit tired of the “standard” old word problems. There is so much data in the world today that the applications just jump out of the Internet. Thought I might share some of these, with the relevant topics, as I write them. These resources are shared freely and I ask only that you cite the source with CC BY-NC-SA 4.0 licensing and a link to these resources.

Each link below will take you to a viewable Google Doc. Make a copy of the Google Doc if you’d like to make alterations. If you include a link directly to the exercise, please be aware that I sometimes make small changes to the activities.
