http://www.causeweb.org/cwis/index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=2338
http://www.causeweb.org/cwis/index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=2338The WISE Bootstrapping Applet can be used to demonstrate bootstrapping by creating a confidence interval for a population mean or median. The user can manipulate the population distribution, sample size, and number of resamples. An associated guide gives suggestions for teaching bootstrapping.Sun, 3 Feb 2013 09:56:23 -0500Confidence Interval Game
http://www.causeweb.org/cwis/index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=2339

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**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=2329The applet demonstrates, in a visual manner, the following probability and statistical concepts (and there is also a random number generator): Introduction to Probability Models (Using dice rolls), Hypergeometric Distribution, Poisson Distribution, Normal Distribution, Hypothesis Testing for Proportions, Confidence Intervals for Means, The Central Limit Theorem, Bivariate Normal Distribution, and Linear Regression.Sun, 1 Apr 2012 10:21:14 -0400Confidence Interval Creation Applet

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 -0400**Probability Histograms

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 -0500Mathematica Overiews
