http://www.causeweb.org/cwis/index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=2280
http://www.causeweb.org/cwis/index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=2280This tutorial is intended to teach students how power in a one-sample Z-test is influenced by effect size, variability (population standard deviation), sample size, and significance level. WISE Power Tutorial can be used in a variety of settings including as a tutorial for an individual student, during a lab, and after a lecture. The applet embedded in the tutorial could be used during an in-class demonstration.Sun, 30 Jan 2011 01:36:32 -0500**Confidence Intervals Applet
http://www.causeweb.org/cwis/index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=2239
http://www.causeweb.org/cwis/index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=2239This applet builds confidence intervals for the percentage of orange candies in box with two colors of candies. A smaller box visualizes the sample, and a graph keeps track of the location of the confidence interval. Students can take one sample (producing one CI) repeatedly, or take 100 random samples at once. The population percentage is hidden from view unless the student asks to see it, in which case it is displayed on the graph of confidence intervals. This allows the students to see whether each interval "hits" or "misses". Several parameters can be varied: sample size, confidence level and number of samples. A set of questions alongside the applet guides students.Sun, 5 Dec 2010 02:50:54 -0500TeachingWithData.org

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 -0400Webinar: Real-Time Online Hands-on Activities for Introductory Statistics
http://www.causeweb.org/cwis/index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=1891
http://www.causeweb.org/cwis/index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=1891Webinar recorded May 9, 2006 presented by Carl Lee of Central Michigan University and hosted by Jackie Miller of The Ohio State University. Do you use hands-on activities in your class? Would you be interested in using data collected by students from different classes at different institutions? Would you be interested in sharing your students' data with others? Does it take more time than you would like to spend in your class for hands-on activities? Do you have to enter the hands-on activity data yourself after the class period?If your answer to any of the above questions is "YES", then, this Real-Time Online Database approach should be beneficial to your class.In this presentation, Dr. Lee (1) introduces the real-time online database (stat.cst.cmich.edu/statact) funded by a NSF/CCL grant, (2) demonstrates how to use the real-time database to teach introductory statistics using two of the real-time activities and (3) shares with you some of the assessment activities including activity work sheets and projects.Sat, 1 Aug 2009 01:49:58 -0400BrightStat.com - Statistics made easy

http://www.causeweb.org/cwis/index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=1793This FLASH based applet illustrates the sampling distribution of the mean. This applet allows the user to pick a population from over 2000 pre-defined populations. The user can then choose size of the random sample to select. The applet can produce random samples in one, 10, 100, or 1000 at a time. The resulting means are illustrated on a histogram. The histogram has an outline of the normal distribution and vertical lines at 1, 2, and 3 standard deviations. The applet can be viewed at the original site or downloaded to the instructors machine.Sat, 26 Jan 2008 05:00:45 -0500Statz Rappers
