  • This page of Statistical Java describes 11 different probability distributions including the Binomial, Poisson, Negative Binomial, Geometric, T, Chi-squared, Gamma, Weibull, Log-Normal, Beta, and F. Each distribution has its own applet in which users can manipulate the parameters to see how the distribution changes. The parameters are described on the main page as well as situations that would use each distribution. The equations of the distributions are not given. To select between the different applets you can click on Statistical Theory, Probability Distributions 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 chapter of the HyperStat Online Textbook presents six sections on probability including conditional probability, unions, intersections, and the Binomial distribution. A link to exercises for the chapter is available, as well as a link to an applet that demonstrates the approximation of the binomial with a normal distribution (in section 5).

  • The Against All Odds video series provides an extensive introduction to statistics. It consists of 26 half hour video episodes that include lecturing on statistical topics, animations of statistical topics and video of real world examples. The series is available online or can be purchased on VHS video tape. The statistical material in the series was supervised by Dr. David Moore and accordingly much of the material echos the language used in Moore's textbooks. Topics covered include most topics from an introductory statistics course and slightly more advanced topics such as seasonal variation, blocking of experimental designs and even Chernof faces. The material is very well suited for students in undergraduate statistics classes.

  • This activity allows the user to create and manipulate histograms with built-in or user-specified data, and provides links to discussion and exercise questions. The mean and standard deviation of each data set are also calculated and the bin width of each histogram can be changed by the user.

  • This tutorial on the Two Sample t test includes its definition, assumptions, hypotheses, and results as well as tests for equal variance and 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.
