http://www.causeweb.org/cwis/index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=1970
http://www.causeweb.org/cwis/index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=1970Many introductory Statistics courses consist of two main components: lecture sections and computer laboratory sections. In the computer labs, students often review fundamental course concepts, learn to analyze data using statistical software, and practice applying their knowledge to real world scenarios. Lab time could be better utilized if students arrived with 1) prior exposure to the core statistical ideas, and 2) a basic familiarity with the statistical software package. To achieve these objectives, PreLabs have been integrated into an introductory statistics course. A simple screen capture software (Jing) was used to create videos. The videos and a very short corresponding assignment together form a PreLab and are made available to students to access at appropriate times in the course.Some PreLabs were created to expose the students to statistical software details. Other PreLabs incorporate an available online learning resource or applet which allows students to gain a deeper understanding of a course concept through simulation and visualization. Not all on-line learning resources are ready to use 'as in' in a course. Some may be lacking a preface or description on how they are to be used; others may use slightly different notation or language than your students are accustomed to; a few may even contain an error or item that needs some clarification. One solution to such difficulties was to create a video wrapper so students can see how the applet works while receiving guidance from the instructor.In this webinar we will share the success story of how one introductory Statistics course integrated these video wrappers into the course and the discuss other possible applications.Wed, 23 Sep 2009 02:37:20 -0400Webinar: Sneaking in a Few History Lessons when Teaching Statistics
http://www.causeweb.org/cwis/index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=1964
http://www.causeweb.org/cwis/index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=1964Many of us, while teaching an introductory statistics course, have mentioned some of the history behind the methodology, perhaps just in passing. We might remark that an English chap by the name of R. A. Fisher is responsible for a great deal of the course content. We could further point out that the statistical techniques used in research today were developed within the last century, for the most part. At most, we might reveal the identity of the mysterious "Student" when introducing the t-test to our class. I propose that we do more of this. This webinar will highlight some opportunities to give brief history lessons while teaching an introductory statistics course.Mon, 31 Aug 2009 12:36:34 -0400**One-way ANOVA Demonstration

http://www.causeweb.org/cwis/index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=1717
http://www.causeweb.org/cwis/index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=1717This classroom example illustrates the concept that estimators are random variables. The example makes use of the classic problem of estimating the size of a population by observing serial numbers, specifically estimating the number of taxis in a city. In this article from the Journal "Teaching Statistics," The author explains how to encourage a discussion among students about the best estimator for a population size. The author then uses a simulation to determine which of a group of candidate estimates should be used.Wed, 7 Mar 2007 06:56:13 -0500General Central Limit Theorem (CLT) Activity
http://www.causeweb.org/cwis/index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=1699
http://www.causeweb.org/cwis/index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=1699This activity represents a very general demonstration of the effects of the Central Limit Theorem (CLT). The activity is based on the SOCR Sampling Distribution CLT Experiment. This experiment builds upon a RVLS CLT applet (http://www.ruf.rice.edu/~lane/stat_sim/sampling_dist/) by extending the applet functionality and providing the capability of sampling from any SOCR Distribution.Goals of this activity: provide intuitive notion of sampling from any process with a well-defined distribution; motivate and facilitate learning of the central limit theorem; empirically validate that sample-averages of random observations (most processes) follow approximately normal distribution; empirically demonstrate that the sample-average is special and other sample statistics (e.g., median, variance, range, etc.) generally do not have distributions that are normal; illustrate that the expectation of the sample-average equals the population mean (and the sample-average is typically a good measure of centrality for a population/process); show that the variation of the sample average rapidly decreases as the sample size increases.Tue, 23 Jan 2007 12:42:06 -0500Statistics Explained
