For most mathematical statistics courses, teaching examples such as ball drawing, coin tossing, defective item selection, and so forth are somewhat boring for the students. Projects are few. In this article, an interesting real-life project, image reconstruction, is introduced. It can be presented as an application of Bayesian statistics. Copyright © 1994 American Statistical Association.
