  • Use the Sample Size Calculator to determine the sample size you need in order to get results that reflect the target population as precisely as needed. You can also find the level of precision you have in an existing sample. The site also describes terms you need to know to understand confidence intervals and what they mean.

  • The applets in this section of Statistical Java allow you to see how the Central Limit Theorem works. The main page gives the characteristics of five non-normal distributions (Bernoulli, Poisson, Exponential, U-shaped, and Uniform). Users then select one of the distributions and change the sample size to see how the distribution of the sample mean approaches normality. Users can also change the number of samples. To select between the different applets you can click on Statistical Theory, the Central Limit Theorem 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/

  • This is a collection of applets regarding various topics in statistics. Topics include Central Limit Theorem, Probability Distributions, Hypothesis Testing, Power, Confidence Intervals, Correlation, Control Charts, Experimental Design, Data Analysis, and Regression. Each topic has a description page and links to one or more applets. This page was formerly located at http://www.stat.vt.edu/~sundar/java/applets/

  • This applet simulates and plots the sampling distribution of various statistics (i.e. mean, standard deviation, variance). The applet allows the user to specify the population distribution, sample size, and statistic. An animated sample from the population is shown and the statistic is plotted. This can be repeated to produce the sampling distribution of the statistic. After the sampling distribution is plotted it can be compared to a normal distribution by overlaying a normal curve. These features make it useful for introducing students in a first course to the idea of a sampling distribution. The site also includes instructions and exercises.

  • Statistics is a poem by Canadian physician Neil Harding McAlister (1952 - ). The poem contains material that can help with class discussions about sample surveys, medical experiments, and significance testing.
