This is a collection of cases to demonstrate concepts of inferential statistics. Many materials are flash based, which is specifically interesting for young and beginning learners. This resource provides a simple introduction to probability and to Type I and II errors.

Comments | This resource provides an odd combination of (1) a very simple treatment of probability and (2) an introduction to Type I and Type II errors. Separately, either of these could be worth studying in the format presented here. As a pair, they don’t fit together very well; nor is either of them presented particularly well here. Ultimately, the student gets a tiny bit each of two not-so-simple concepts rather than a deeper exploration of one of the two. The Assessment module asks three trivial questions about probability and one about Type I error. |
