• ### Mathematica Overiews

This site contains several videos about how to use Mathematica and how to teach with Mathematica.
• ### Data Collection+Examples: STATS 46 Issue 46, Fall 2006

This issue contains an article that provides an example of a paired samples test related to flying and gliding. It also includes an article about understanding confounding from lurking variables using graphs. Other articles include: a short description about what the t-tests actually tests, an interview with David Moore about why 30 is the "magic" number, a discussion about whether or not outliers should be deleted from a data set, a discussion of observational studies, and a simulation piece about random numbers from non-random arithmetic.
• ### Data Collection+Examples: STATS 47 Issue 47, Spring 2007

This issue contains an interview with Sallie Keller-McNulty and an article about which came first -- the chicken or the egg. Other articles include a discussion related to an AP Statistics example of seeing the trees for the forest (this focuses on understanding variability between groups and within groups), a discussion of how high r can go, a simulation piece focused on shrinking students, poisoned children, and bootsraps, and an example of a permutation test of the Challenger O-Ring data.
• ### **ANOVA Simulation

The two worksheets enable instructors to demonstrate how changes in the magnitude of the treatment effects and of the standard deviation of the error term will impact significance in a One-Way ANOVA model. The user specifies three input values that influence the simulation of random observations. ANOVA calculations are provided for the student, leaving the focus on the interpretation of the results. The mirror site (found at http://misnt.indstate.edu/cmclaren/ANOVA_Note.doc) contains an article that can serve as a teaching note to accompany the worksheets.
• ### Data Collection: State Health Facts

This site funded by the Kaiser Family Foundation provides information on health care and demographics for the 50 U.S. states. Users can use interactive maps or search by particular characteristics for each state. Tables can be created and copied and there is also direct data download (in Excel format) from this site. The site includes data on median income, gender, ethnicity, medical and drug spending, HIV/AIDS rates, and over 500 other variables at the state level
• ### Data Collection: Quantitative Environmental Learning Project Data Set #50

This dataset contains information on temperature, precipitation, and weather stations for 48 states. The data is available in Excel and rich text formats.
• ### Mann-Whitney Test

This tutorial on the Mann-Whitney test includes its definition, assumptions, characteristics, and hypotheses as well as procedures for graphical comparisons. An example using output from the WINKS software is given, but those without the software can still use the tutorial. An exercise is given at the end that can be done with any statistical software package.
• ### The Sign Test

This tutorial explains the theory and use of the Sign Test and demonstrates it with an example on intervention methods. Data is given as well as SPSS and Minitab code.
• ### Two-Way Analysis of Variance

This tutorial explains the theory and use of two-way ANOVA and demonstrates it with an example on final exam scores. Data is given as well as SPSS and Minitab code.
• ### Mann-Whitney U-Test

This tutorial explains the theory and use of the Mann-Whitney test and demonstrates it with an example on traditional lecture versus computer-based teaching. Data is given as well as SPSS and Minitab code.
