• ### Use of R as a Toolbox for Mathematical Statistics Exploration

This site links to the article "Use of R as a Toolbox for Mathematical Statistics Exploration," to activities demonstrating the use of R programming language, and to the site where users can download R. Activities cover the following topics: calculation of a running variance, maximization of a non-linear function, resampling of a statistic, simple Bayesian modeling, sampling from multivariate normal, and estimation of power.
• ### GAISE Draft Report

The GAISE project was funded by a Strategic Initiative Grant from ASA in 2003 to develop ASA-endorsed guidelines for assessment and instruction in statistics in the K-12 curriculum and for the introductory college statistics course.
• ### Mathematics

A collection of links to video workshops for students in mathematics. Includes many topics from statistics to math and science to algebra.
• ### Statistical Engineering

A good resource for problems in statistics in engineering. Contains some applets, and good textual examples related to engineering. Some topics include Monte Carlo method, Central Limit Theorem, Risk, Logistic Regression, Generalized Linear .Models, and Confidence.
• ### Sampling Methods

This site briefly defines several different types of sampling methods, contrasts probability and nonprobability sampling, and discusses target population. Part of a tutorial on questionnaire and survey design.
• ### 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".
