• ### Two-Way Tables and the Chi-Square Test

This site gives an explanation, a definition and an example of two-way tables and the chi-square test. Topics include: categorical data analysis for two variables, and tests of association.
• ### Distributions

This online, interactive lesson on distributions provides examples, exercises, and applets which explore the basic types of probability distributions and the ways distributions can be defined using density functions, distribution functions, and quantile functions.
• ### Expected Value

This online, interactive lesson on expected value provides examples, exercises, and applets in which students will explore relationships between the expected value of real-valued random variables and the center of the distribution. Students will also examine how expected values can be used to measure spread and correlation.
• ### Special Distributions

This online, interactive lesson on special distributions provides examples, exercises, and applets covering normal, gamma, chi-square, student t, F, bivariate normal, multivariate normal, beta, weibull, zeta, pareto, logistic, lognormal, and extreme value distributions.
• ### 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.
• ### Java Applets for Visualization of Statistical Concepts

This collection of applets simulate many different statistical concepts such as: distributions, correlation, hypothesis testing, regression, and ANOVA.
• ### Markov Chains

Develops the idea of the transition matrix and what it can tell you.
• ### 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.
• ### ** 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".
