One Numerical Variable

• Introduction to Statistics: Mean, Median, and Mode

The goal of this lesson is to introduce the concepts of mean, median and mode and to develop understanding and familiarity with these ideas. The activity lets students explore mean and median in an efficient way and the discussion helps them to formalize their knowledge of measures of center.
• Sampling Distribution Generator for Sample Mean Differences

This page generates a graph of the sampling distribution of the difference between two means and displays the probabilities associated with that distribution. Users enter the population standard deviation and the sample sizes, Na and Nb. The applet also calculates the standard error of the sample mean difference.

• Sampling Distribution Generator for r (Correlation Coefficient)

This page generates a graph of the sampling distribution of r, the Pearson correlation coefficient. Upon opening, the applet prompts for sample size greater than 6. The applet also displays the probabilities associated with the distribution.

• t-Distribution Generator

Generate a graphic and numerical display of the properties of the t-distribution for values of df between 4 and 200, inclusive.

• Poisson Sampling Distribution Generator

This page generates a Poisson distribution, as approximated by the Binomial. After clicking continue, users must enter the sample size (n>39) and probability of success (between 0.0 and 0.2, inclusive). A graph of the Poisson distribution with mean=np is shown as well as a table of the Poisson probabilities. Key Word: Poisson Calculator.

• Poisson Sampling Distribution Generator (with Specific Mean)

This page generates a histogram of a Poisson distribution and the associated table of probabilities. Upon opening the page, users will be prompted to enter the mean of the distribution (between 0.01 and 20.0, inclusive). Key Word: Poisson Calculator.

• z to P Calculator

Calculates the areas under the curve of the normal distribution falling to the left of -z, to the right of +z, and between -z and +z.

• Standard Error Calculator of the Difference Between the Means of Two Samples

The page displays the sampling distribution and the standard error of the difference between two sample means. To calculate standard error, enter the standard deviation of the source population, along with the sample sizes, Na and Nb, and then click "Calculate".

• F-Distribution Generator

Generate a graphic and numerical display of the properties of the F-Distributions, for any value of df_numerator and for values of df_denominator >= 5.

• Kolmogorov-Smirnov One-Sample Test Calculator

This page performs a Kolmogorov-Smirnov "Goodness of Fit" test for categorical data. Users enter observed frequencies and expected frequencies for up to 8 mutually exclusive categories. The applet returns the critical values for the .05 and .01 levels of significance.
