Simulation

  • A collection of applets addressing data analysis, sampling distribution simulations, and probability and inference. Some can be used individually, though others require context from the textbook.

  • The applet in this section allows you see how probabilities are determined from the exponential distribution. The user determines the mean of the distribution and the limits of probability. Three different probability expressions are available. Click "Calculate" to see the pdf and the cdf. The probability is highlighted in green on the pdf.

  • The applets in this section allow users to see how probabilities and quantiles are determined from a Normal distribution. For calculating probabilities, set the mean, variance, and limits; for calculating quantiles, set the mean, variance, and probability. Users can choose from three different probability expressions. Variance is restricted to numbers between 0.1 and 10, inclusive. To select between the different applets you can click on Statistical Theory, Normal Distribution and then the Main Page. At the bottom of this page you can make your applet selection. This page was formerly located at http://www.stat.vt.edu/~sundar/java/applets/

  • The applet in this section allows you to see how the T distribution is related to the Standard Normal distribution by calculating probabilities. The T distribution is primarily used to make inferences on a Normal mean when the variance is unknown. If the variance is known inference on the mean can be done using the Standard Normal. The user has a choice of three different probability expressions, then can change the degrees of freedom and the limits of probability.

  • Stattucino is a free Java-based system for data analysis. This service is available as a Java applet or application. Some statistics are provided by a web-based interface as servlets. The applet and the application have a spreadsheet type interface for entering data, whereas the servlets use a html form for entering data. The output produced by the servlets, the applet and the application are in html.

  • This applet shows the normal or Gaussian distribution. The distribution has two parameters, the mean and the standard deviation. Click the draw button after filling in new values for the mean and the standard deviation to obtain a new diagram of the normal distribution.

  • The goal of this assignment is to obtain summary statistics for the variables in the data set, ncbirth1450.xls, which represents a random sample of 1450 births from the state of North Carolina.
