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=2248
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 -0500getstats

http://www.causeweb.org/cwis/index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=1185
http://www.causeweb.org/cwis/index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=1185This recording of a web seminar (webinar) provides a tour of the Assessment Resource Tools for Improving Statistical Thinking (ARTIST) web site. During this webinar, ARTIST team member Bob delMas guides you through the ARTIST website. The tour includes an overview of an online collection of literature on assessment in statistics education, much of which can be accessed online or downloaded. Resources for creating alternative forms of assessment such as student projects are also presented. You will also learn about efficient ways to create assessments from items from the ARTIST Item Database using a tool known as the Assessment Builder. By the end of the session, you will have learned how to select assessment items and download them in a format that can be edited with a word processor.Fri, 24 Mar 2006 02:23:04 -0500Against All Odds: 21. Inference for One Mean
http://www.causeweb.org/cwis/index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=620
http://www.causeweb.org/cwis/index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=620In this free online video, students discover an improved technique for statistical problems that involves a population mean: the t statistic for use when sigma is not known. Emphasis is on paired samples and the t confidence test and interval. The program covers the precautions associated with these robust t procedures, along with their distribution characteristics and broad applications."

Thu, 12 May 2005 04:08:19 -0400Star Library: What Makes the Standard Deviation Larger or Smaller?
http://www.causeweb.org/cwis/index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=918
http://www.causeweb.org/cwis/index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=918The activity is designed to help students develop a better intuitive understanding of what is meant by variability in statistics. Emphasis is placed on the standard deviation as a measure of variability. As they learn about the standard deviation, many students focus on the variability of bar heights in a histogram when asked to compare the variability of two distributions. For these students, variability refers to the “variation” in bar heights. Other students may focus only on the range of values, or the number of bars in a histogram, and conclude that two distributions are identical in variability even when it is clearly not the case. This activity can help students discover that the standard deviation is a measure of the density of values about the mean of a distribution and to become more aware of how clusters, gaps, and extreme values affect the standard deviation. Key words: Variability, standard deviation Thu, 12 May 2005 03:08:10 -0400Against All Odds: 25. Inference for Relationships
http://www.causeweb.org/cwis/index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=645
http://www.causeweb.org/cwis/index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=645In this free online video program, "students will understand inference for simple linear regression, emphasizing slope, and prediction. This unit presents the two most important kinds of inference: inference about the slope of the population line and prediction of the response for a given x. Although the formulas are more complicated, the ideas are similar to t procedures for the mean sigma of a population."

http://www.causeweb.org/cwis/index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=621In this free online video program, "a two-way table of counts displays the relationship between two ways of classifying people or things. This program concerns inference about two-way tables, covering use of the chi-square test and null hypothesis in determining the relationship between two ways of classifying a case.

http://www.causeweb.org/cwis/index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=618This free online video program "explains the basic reasoning behind tests of significance and the concept of null hypothesis. The program shows how a z-test is carried out when the hypothesis concerns the mean of a normal population with known standard deviation. These ideas are explored by determining whether a poem “fits Shakespeare as well as Shakespeare fits Shakespeare.” Court battles over discrimination in hiring provide additional illustration.
