  • A song that may be used in discussing the meaning and interpretation of the confidence level for a confidence interval. The lyrics were written by Mary McLellan from Aledo High School in Aledo, Texas as one of several dozen songs created for her AP statistics course. The song may be sung to the tune of the Beatles 1965 hit song Can’t Buy Me Love, written by Paul McCartney. Also, an accompanying video may be found at

  • A short story that might be used as an out-of-class assignment to facilitate understanding the interpretation of a 95% confidence interval as a random interval that is expected to cover the true parameter in 95% of all samples. The story was written in 2011 by Canadian mathematician Robert Dawson from Saint Mary's University in Halifax Nova Scotia. The story was published as a two part series at www.Lablit.com

  • No matter how much reverence is paid to anything purporting to be statistics," the term has no meaning unless the source, relevance, and truth are all checked." is a quote by American English professor Tom B. Burnam (1913-1991). The quote is found on page 244 of his 1975 book "The Dictionary of Misinformation".

  • The WISE Bootstrapping Applet can be used to demonstrate bootstrapping by creating a confidence interval for a population mean or median. The user can manipulate the population distribution, sample size, and number of resamples. An associated guide gives suggestions for teaching bootstrapping.
