  • In this demonstration a scatterplot is displayed and you draw in a regression line by hand. You can then compare your line to the best least squares fit. You can also try to guess the value of Pearson's correlation coefficient.

  • This applet demonstrates that even a "small" effect can be important under some circumstances. Applicants from two groups apply for a job. The user manipulates the mean and the cut-off score in order to see the effects the small changes has on the number of people hired in each group. The effects on the proportion of hired applicants from each group are displayed.(Requires a browser that supports Java).

  • The applet allows users to sample from a normal distribution or from a uniform distribution. It shows the expected values and the observed values and computes the deviation. Then, a chi-square test shows if the deviations are significant for both the normal and uniform distributions.

  • This free online video program "marks a transition in the series: from a focus on inference about the mean of a population to exploring inferences about a different kind of parameter, the proportion or percent of a population that has a certain characteristic. Students will observe the use of confidence intervals and tests for comparing proportions applied in government estimates of unemployment rates."

  • This free online video program "presents a detailed case study of statistics at work. Operating in a real-world setting, the program traces the practice of statistics - planning the data collection, collecting and picturing the data, drawing inferences from the data, and deciding how confident we can be about our conclusions. Students will begin to see the full range and power of the concepts and techniques they have learned." This individual video is accessed by scrolling down to the "Individual Program Descriptions - 26. Case Study " and click the "VOD" icon at the top-right of the description.
