http://www.causeweb.org/cwis/index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=2335
http://www.causeweb.org/cwis/index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=2335This YouTube channel includes a series of video interviews between John McGready and some of his colleagues from Johns Hopkins University. The videos are meant to highlight the importance of biostatistics as a core driver of public health discovery, the importance of statistical reasoning in the research process, and how the fundamentals that are covered in an introductory biostatistics course are the framework for more advanced methodology.Tue, 27 Nov 2012 04:29:25 -0500The Joy of Stats YouTube video

http://www.causeweb.org/cwis/index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=2248This is short clip from a longer documentary shown on BBC. The BBC documentary takes viewers on a rollercoaster ride through the wonderful world of statistics to explore the remarkable power thay have to change our understanding of the world, presented by superstar boffin Professor Hans Rosling, whose eye-opening, mind-expanding and funny online lectures have made him an international internet legend.Rosling is a man who revels in the glorious nerdiness of statistics, and here he entertainingly explores their history, how they work mathematically and how they can be used in today's computer age to see the world as it really is, not just as we imagine it to be.Rosling's lectures use huge quantities of public data to reveal the story of the world's past, present and future development. Now he tells the story of the world in 200 countries over 200 years using 120,000 numbers - in just four minutes.Thu, 16 Dec 2010 02:40:37 -0500Radiolab Stochasticity Broadcast
http://www.causeweb.org/cwis/index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=2171
http://www.causeweb.org/cwis/index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=2171This hour long radio podcast focuses on stochasticity, or randomness. According the website: "Stochasticity (a wonderfully slippery and smarty-pants word for randomness), may be at the very foundation of our lives. To understand how big a role it plays, we look at chance and patterns in sports, lottery tickets, and even the cells in our own body. Along the way, we talk to a woman suddenly consumed by a frenzied gambling addiction, meet two friends whose meeting seems to defy pure chance, and take a close look at some very noisy bacteria." Several guests appear in this radio podcast, including Deborah Nolan.Sat, 13 Nov 2010 12:25:04 -0500Mathematica Overiews

http://www.causeweb.org/cwis/index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=607
http://www.causeweb.org/cwis/index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=607In this free online video program, "students will learn to derive and interpret the correlation coefficient using the relationship between a baseball player’s salary and his home run statistics." The students will then "discover how to use the square of the correlation coefficient to measure the strength and direction of a relationship between two variables. A study comparing identical twins raised together and apart illustrates the concept of correlation." This individual video is accessed by scrolling down to the "Individual Program Descriptions - 9.

http://www.causeweb.org/cwis/index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=606
http://www.causeweb.org/cwis/index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=606This free online program describes "how to use a scatterplot to display relationships between variables. Patterns in variables (positive, negative, and linear association) and the importance of outliers are discussed. The program also calculates the least squares regression line of metabolic rate y on lean body mass x for a group of subjects and examines the fit of the regression line by plotting residuals."

http://www.causeweb.org/cwis/index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=605
http://www.causeweb.org/cwis/index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=605This free online video program offers topics that "include linear growth, least squares, exponential growth, and straightening an exponential growth curve by logic. A study of growth problems in children serves to illustrate the use of the logarithm function to transform an exponential pattern into a line. The program also discusses growth in world oil production over time." This individual video is accessed by scrolling down to the "Individual Program Descriptions - 7.

http://www.causeweb.org/cwis/index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=603In this free online video program, "students will discover how to convert the standard normal and use the standard deviation; how to use a table of areas to compute relative frequencies; how to find any percentile; and how a computer creates a normal quartile plot to determine whether a distribution is normal. Vehicle emissions standards and medical studies of cholesterol provide real-life examples." This individual video is accessed by scrolling down to the "Individual Program Descriptions - 5.

http://www.causeweb.org/cwis/index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=602In this free online video program, "students will advance from histograms through smooth curves to normal curves, and finally to a single normal curve for standardized measurement, as this program shows ways to describe the shape of a distribution using progressively simpler methods. In a lesson on creating a density curve, students also learn why, under steadily decreasing deviation, today’s baseball players are less likely to achieve a .400 batting average."
