• ### *Interpreting Graphical Displays of Univariate Distributions

In this activity, students work in groups to provide practical interpretations of graphs, considering shape, center, and spread. Each group posts their interpretation for one graph and critiques other groups' interpretations on other graphs. Students examine key aspects (shape, spread, location, etc) of histograms and stem plots to develop the ability to interpret graphics. This activity gets the students up and out of their seats and working together. It is a good activity for early in a term. The Gallery Walk idea can be adapted for different sized classes but this activity has been designed for classes up to 65 students.

• ### Strategies for data analysis

This presentation on data analysis addresses observational studies and randomized controlled trials in two different sections. Types of studies are defined and examples of each study is given to emphasize the differences. Factors and variables are also discussed.

• ### Nonprobability Sampling

This site describes numerous methods of nonprobability sampling, including accidental, haphazard or convenience sampling and the many types of purposive methods.

• ### Understanding ANOVA Visually

Visual ANOVA is a simple little program that lets you put all this theory we've been describing into a simple visual whole. It assumes that you've read the Meanings and Intuitions section and have have understood the the general ideas at least. Even if your understanding of the previous section is incomplete at this time, it is worth playing with Visual ANOVA since that may clear up the big picture of ANOVA for you.

• ### Probability Models JAVA Applet Sourcecode

This applet simulates rolling dice and displays the outcomes in a histogram. Students can choose to roll 1, 2, 6, or 9 dice either 1, 10, 20, or 100 times. The outcome studied is the sum of the dice and a red line is drawn on the histogram to show expected number of occurences of each outcome.
