  • One health concern that arises when shifting from an environment with gravity to microgravity is the loss of bone mass density. This Math and Science @ Work advanced statistics activity has students analyze two different exercise countermeasures and construct null and alternative hypotheses to determine their relative effectiveness in maintaining bone mineral density.

    NASA's Math and Science @ Work project provides challenging supplemental problems for students in advanced science, technology, engineering and mathematics, or STEM classes including Physics, Calculus, Biology, Chemistry and Statistics, along with problems for advanced courses in U.S. History and Human Geography.

  • Statistics is often taught as though the design of the data collection and the data cleaning have already been done in advance.  However, as most practicing statisticians quickly learn, typically problems that arise at the analysis stage, could have been avoided if the experimenter had consulted a statistician before the experiment was done and the data were conducted.  This course is created to provide an understanding of how experiments should be designed so that when the data are collected, these shortcomings are avoided.  Perfect for students and teachers wanting to learn/acquire materials for this topic.

  • Analysis of variance (ANOVA) is used to test hypotheses about differences between two or more means. The t-test based on the standard error of the difference between two means can only be used to test differences between two means. When there are more than two means, it is possible to compare each mean with each other mean using t-tests. However, conducting multiple t-tests can lead to severe inflation of the Type I error rate. (Click here to see why) Analysis of variance can be used to test differences among several means for significance without increasing the Type I error rate. This chapter covers designs with between-subject variables.
