• ### Chebychev's Estimate

For n = 50 to 400, in steps of size 5, this program computes and displays (1) the exact probability P(|A_n - p| >= epsilon), where A_n is the average outcome of n Bernoulli trials with probability p of success, and (2) the Chebyshev estimate p(1-p)/(n(epsilon^2)) for this probability. You can specify p and epsilon.
• ### Sampling Distributions (Presentation 7)

This PowerPoint presentation teaches sampling distributions related to proportions and means using multiple examples, charts, and graphs.
• ### Simulation of the t-distribution

The t-distribution activity is a student-based in-class activity to illustrate the conceptual reason for the t-distribution. Students use TI-83/84 calculators to conduct a simulation of random samples. The students calculate standard scores with both the population standard deviation and the sample standard deviation. The resulting values are pooled over the entire class to give the simulation a reasonable number of iterations.
• ### Internal Validity Tutorial

This tutorial introduces 9 sources of threat to internal vailidity and asks the user to classify hypothetical experiments as either internally valid or invalid and identify the source of threat if invalid.
• ### Overview: Reliability and Validity

This site discusses the issues of reliability and vailidity as related to research.
• ### Elementary Concepts in Statistics

Gives an overview of variables, classifications, measurements, relations, and other basic statistical concepts. Also contains two animated graphs.
• ### Venn Diagram Applet

In this applet, A and B are subsets of a universal set S. The list is given of the 16 different subsets of S that can be constructed from A and B using the basic set operations of union, intersection, and complement. The selected subset is colored red in the Venn diagram on the right.
• ### Rocket Launch Probability

This applet is designed to teach an application of probability. This java applet works by simulating a situation where a three stage rocket is about to be launched. In order for a successful launch to occur all three stages of the rocket must successfully pass their pre-takeoff tests. By default, each stage has a 50% chance of success, however, this can be altered by dragging the bar next to each stage.
• ### Psychic Test Demonstration

Users can test their "psychic ability" to predict the future by guessing the outcome of a coin toss before it occurs. Enter your predictions by clicking the "heads" or "tails" button. When you enter your guess, the coin is tossed and the result is displayed. As you continue guessing, the applet keeps track of the total number of guesses and the total number of correct guesses, plotting it above. If you are truly psychic, you should be able to beat the odds in the long run. You can "weight" the coin by changing the probability of it landing heads.
• ### Permutations

This program returns a list of all the permutations of the set {1, 2, ..., n}. It allows you to select the given output, copy it, and paste it into a Word or Excel document.
