• ### Resampling methods: Concepts, Applications, and Justification

This journal article is a summary of resampling methods such as the jackknife, bootstrap, and permutation tests. It summarizes the tests, describes various software to perform the tests, and has a list of references.
• ### Point Estimation

This online, interactive lesson on point estimation provides examples, exercises, and applets concerning estimators, method of moments, maximum likelihood, Bayes estimators, best unbiased estimators, and sufficient, complete and ancillary statistics.
• ### Random Samples

This online, interactive lesson on random samples provides examples, exercises, and applets concerning sample mean, law of large numbers, sample variance, partial sums, central limit theorem, special properties of normal samples, order statistics, and sample covariance and correlation.
• ### 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.
• ### 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.
• ### Confidence Intervals

This site gives an explanation of, a definition for and an example of confidence intervals. It covers topics including inference about population mean and z and t critical values.
• ### What is a Survey?

A series of pamphlets place online by the American Statistical Association, Survey Research Methods Section. Each pamphlet deals with a different aspect of survey research and how it is done.
• ### Student's T Distribution

The larger the degrees of freedom, the closer the t-density is to the normal density. This reflects the fact that the standard deviation s approaches for large sample size n. You can visualize this in the given applet by moving the sliders.
• ### Introduction to Biostatistics

An online Introduction to Biostatistics course complete with lecture notes and links for futher reading, links to applets, and exercises with solutions given.
• ### Hypothesis Testing

The seventh chapter of an online Introduction to Biostatistics course. Two sets of lecture notes are provided (only the first one works). Additionally, links for additional reading and exercises with solutions are provided.
