Multivariate Quantitative Relationships

  • This interactive tutorial on Linear Regression helps the user understand the definition of linear regression, understand the meaning of correlation, use scatter plots, recognize and calculate errors in linear regression, use simple linear regression analysis, use residual analysis of the regression equation, understand the significance of the correlation coefficient and the regression coefficient in linear regression, and solve exercise problems using linear regression.

  • This free online video program "lays out the parts of the confidence interval and gives an example of how it is used to measure the accuracy of long-term mean blood pressure. An example from politics and population surveys shows how margin of error and confidence levels are interpreted. The program also explains the use of a formula to convert the z* values into values on the sampling distribution curve. Finally, the concepts are applied to an issue of animal ethics."

  • As described on the page itself: "The simulation shows a scatterplot of data from a bivariate distribution in which the relationship between the two variables is linear. You can change the "input" values of slope, standard error of the estimate, or standard deviation of X for this data sample, and see the effects of your change. "

  • The only statistics you can trust are those you falsified yourself is a quote attributed to former British Prime Minister Sir Winston Churchill (1874 - 1965). However scholars at the Churchill Centre (www.winstonchurchill.org) can not find this quote in any of Winston Churchill's books, articles, or speeches.

  • In this free online video program, "students will advance from histograms through smooth curves to normal curves, and finally to a single normal curve for standardized measurement, as this program shows ways to describe the shape of a distribution using progressively simpler methods. In a lesson on creating a density curve, students also learn why, under steadily decreasing deviation, today's baseball players are less likely to achieve a .400 batting average." This individual video is accessed by scrolling down to the "Individual Program Descriptions - 4. Normal Distributions" and click the "VOD" icon at the top-right of the description.

  • One of the goals for the development of the Electronic Encyclopedia of Statistical Examples and Exercises (EESEE) was to provide a wide variety of timely, real examples with real data for use in statistics classes. With each story in EESEE, several thought provoking questions were designed to make students think carefully about statistical issues raised by these applications.

  • This chapter of the NIST Engineering Statistics handbook presents information on the statistical modeling of an engineering process. It contains an introduction, discussion of the assumptions, information about data collection and analysis, a discussion of what can be concluded from different process models, and case studies.
