http://www.causeweb.org/cwis/index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=2336
http://www.causeweb.org/cwis/index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=2336This blog will be about access: access to data and access to analysis tools. This blog will be about data privacy, and data sharing. This blog will be about people who use data to better their lives and the lives of others. This blog is meant for anyone wishing to become a citizen statistician, but in particular for statistics teachersâ€“those who help empower citizens to become citizen statisticians.Tue, 27 Nov 2012 04:42:03 -0500StatKey

http://www.causeweb.org/cwis/index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=2332
http://www.causeweb.org/cwis/index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=2332This simulation illustrates least squares regression and how the least squares solution minimizes the sum of the squared residuals. The applet demonstrates, in a visual manner, various concepts related to least squares regression. These include residuals, sum of squares, the mean line, how the line of best fit is determined, and how the line of least squares solution minimizes the sum of the squared residuals.Mon, 2 Apr 2012 02:25:37 -0400**Practice Classifying Statistical Problems
http://www.causeweb.org/cwis/index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=2331
http://www.causeweb.org/cwis/index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=2331On this site, students can practice classifying statistics problems. They first click to check the statistical methods that they want to practice classifying. Then they click the "Submit" button to get a description of a research project that involves a statistical technique. Students then click on the technique that will most likely be used in the project. If they choose the incorrect answer, they must read the hint and try again. When they get something correct, they click on the "Next" button to try another problem.Sun, 1 Apr 2012 10:44:27 -0400**Java Demos for Probability and Statistics
http://www.causeweb.org/cwis/index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=2329

http://www.causeweb.org/cwis/index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=2328
http://www.causeweb.org/cwis/index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=2328The interactive Confidence Interval Creation Applet allows instructors to demonstrate how sample size, alpha level, population shape, and variance affect confidence intervals.Sun, 1 Apr 2012 10:13:35 -0400Confidence Interval Overlap Applet
http://www.causeweb.org/cwis/index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=2327
http://www.causeweb.org/cwis/index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=2327Researchers and students alike often mistake any overlap among 95% confidence intervals to denote a statistically non-significant p value. However, confidence intervals can overlap and still correspond to a statistically significant p value for an independent sample t test. The confidence interval (CI) applet will help learners understand the relationship between confidence interval overlap and statistical significance.Sun, 1 Apr 2012 10:08:50 -0400Statistics Applets

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 -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 -0500**Statistics Online Computational Resource (SOCR) Modeler

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 -0500TeachingWithData.org
