• ### Design of Experiments, QC and Taguchi Methods

Discusses the benefits of Taguchi methods applied to engineering.
• ### The Normal Distribution and Density

The user is be able to change the mean and the standard deviation using the sliders and see the density change graphically. The check buttons (68, 95, 99) will help one realize the appropriate percentages of the area under the curve. An example of thiis "68-95-99.7" rule follows.
• ### Statistics and Data Analysis

This online introductory statistics textbook covers basic descriptive, statistical, and graphical procedures for analyzing data sets and contains three data sets and a practice final exam. Chapter headings include: Descriptive Statistics, Probability, Resampling, Discrete Probability Models, Continuous Probability Models, Central Limit Theorem, Confidence Intervals, Tests of Hypotheses, Estimation of Effect: Two Independent Samples, Design of Experiments, and Regression. The relation to this site includes exercises.
• ### ** Guessing Correlations

This is a basic web application that allows practice with matching points on a scatterplot to the appropriate correlation coefficient, r. Applet provides four scatterplots to match with four numeric correlations via radio buttons. After making selections, students click to see "correct" answers and keep a running total of proportion of correct matches, then may select four more plots.
• ### ** Confidence Interval for a Mean

This Java based applet gives students an opportunity to work through confidence interval problems for the mean. The material provides written word problems in which an individual must be able to correctly identify the given parts for a confidence interval calculation, and then be able to use this information to find the confidence interval. It gives step by step prompts to encourage students to choose the correct numbers and "cast of characters".
• ### Bernoulli Trials

This online, interactive lesson on Bernoulli provides examples, exercises, and applets that cover binomial, geometric, negative binomial, and multinomial distributions.
• ### Patterns in Nature

This site provides a collection of applets and their descriptions. Some of the titles include the Monte Carlo Estimation of Pi, Can You Beat Randomness?, One-Dimensional Random Walk, Two-Dimensional Random Walk, The Anthill and Molecular Motion, Diffusion Limited Aggregation, The Self-Avoiding Walk, Fractal Coastlines, and Forest Fires and Percolation.
• ### Monte Carlo Estimation for Pi

This is the description and instructions for the Monte Carlo Estimation of Pi applet. It is a simulation of throwing darts at a figure of a circle inscribed in a square. It shows the relationship between the geometry of the figure and the statistical outcome of throwing the darts.
• ### **Can You Beat Randomness: The Lottery Game

This is the description and instructions for the Can You Beat Randomness?- The Lottery Game applet. It is a simulation of flipping coins. Students are asked to make conjectures about randomness and how certain strategies affect randomness. It strives to show the "growth of order out of randomness."
• ### The One-Dimensional Random Walk

This is the description and instructions for the One-Dimensional Random Walk applet. This Applet relates random coin-flipping to random motion. It strives to show that randomness (coin-flipping) leads to some sort of predictable outcome (the bell-shaped curve).
