# One Numerical Variable

• ### Statistics Tutorials Based on SPSS and Minitab

This collection of tutorials demonstrates various statistical topics with data and provides SPSS and Minitab code. Topics covered: Measures of Central Tendency; Sign Test; Chi-Square; Mann-Whitney Test; Wilcoxon Matched-Pairs Signed-Ranks Test; Kruskal-Wallis One-Way Analysis of Variance; Friedman Two-Way Analysis of Variance; Spearman Rank Correlation; Pearson Product-Moment Correlation; Multiple Regression; t-Test for Independent Samples; t-Test for Matched Pairs; One-Way ANOVA; Two-Way ANOVA.
• ### Which Statistic When?

This tutorial introduces various statistics used to analyze and summarize data. The tutorial covers both the arithmetic and geometric means, median, mode, standard deviation, coefficient of variation, skewness, kurtosis, quadrants, and histrogram analysis. The application is flow cytometry, but others may use this tutorial as well.
• ### Introduction to Radial Basis Function Networks

This article introduces Radial Basis Function (RBF) networks. These networks rely heavily on regression analysis techniques. Topics include Nonparametric Regression, Classification and Time Series Prediction, Linear Models, Least Squares, Model Selection Criteria, Ridge Regression, and Forward Selection.
• ### Introduction to Descriptive Statistics

This tutorial introduces mean, median, mode, variance, and standard deviation using sports statistics from the Internet and class-generated statistics. Students should understand stem-and-leaf plots before using this tutorial. This material is intended for class use. Excel spreadsheets with sample data are also available for download. The relation links to a letter for teachers.
• ### Factorial Calculator

This page will calculate the factorial of any number.
• ### Glossary of Statistical Terms

This glossary defines and explains statistical terms for introductory students. The glossary can be shown in alphabetical order or in suggested learning order. Click on the topic of interest to see the definition. Use the arrows at the bottom to proceed to the next topic or click the blue dot to return to the contents page.
• ### CAST: Computer Assisted Statistics Teaching

CAST contains three complete introductory statistics courses, one advanced statistical methods course, and additional modules. Each introductory course presents the same topics, but with different applications. The first is a general version, the second is a biometric version with examples relating to biological, agricultural and health sciences, and the third is a business version. Each course comes in a student version and a lecture version. The additional modules cover Multiple and Nonlinear Regression, Quality Control, and Simulation. Registration is required, but free. Individuals or classes can register.
• ### Sampling Distribution Simulation

This applet demonstrates the Central Limit Theorem. First, select a distribution (Normal, Uniform, Skewed, Custom) and add or delete data points by clicking on the graph. Then, sample from the parent population and the distribution of the sample mean is shown. Users can also choose to see the distribution of the median, standard deviation, variance, and range.
• ### Galton's Board or Quincunx

This applet demonstrates the Binomial distribution by simulating Galton's Board, dropping balls through a triangular array of nails. When a ball hits a nail, it has a 50 percent chance of falling to the left or the right. Because Galton's Board consists of a series of experiments, the piles under the board are the sum of n random variables, where n is the number of rows of nails on the board.
• ### Song: You've Got Your Models

Song includes vocabulary from fitting models, including outliers and assumptions. May be sung to tune of "You've Got Your Models" (The Fortunes). Musical accompaniment realization and vocals are by Joshua Lintz from University of Texas at El Paso.
