I would like to stress the kind of reference I am looking for: In statistics there are lots of motivating (and sometimes unexpected) examples that are interesting for everyone such as Birthday Problem, Simpson Paradox, secretary problem, St Petersburg Paradox that easily motivate people from different fields. I love the examples that come from physics or economics, but usually they are usually interested only for students of engineering (or physics) and economics.
Suggestions of papers from American Mathematical Monthly, American Scientist or periodicals that specialize in teaching are very welcome!
(This question was previously posted in Math.StackExchange and someone suggested to post it here. Since I have received no answer there, I am following this suggestion.)
