Statistical Inference and Techniques -- Nonlinear Models

View Resource Bayesian Calculator

This page uses Bayes' Theorem to calculate the probability of a hypothesis given a datum. An example about cancer is given to help users understand Bayes' Theorem and the calculator. Key Word: Conditional Probability.
View Resource Contingency Table Calculator

This page introduces contigency tables with an example on fruit trees and fire blight. Two calculators are provided that allow users to enter their own contigency table and test for treatment effects. The first calculator performs Fisher's Exact Test on a 2x2 tables. The second performs a chi-square test on up to a 9x9 table.
View Resource Dataset Example: Using EDA, ANOVA and Regression to Optimise some Microbiology Data

This article describes a dataset containing information on bacterium culturing. Students can use graphical methods, one-way and two-way ANOVA, and multiple polynomial regression to estimate the optimal conditions for bacteria growth. Key Words: Analysis of variance; Exploratory data analysis; Interactions; Optimisation; Outlier.
View Resource Friedman's Test

This tutorial on Friedman's Test includes its definition, assumptions, characteristics, and hypotheses. 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.
View Resource Gamma Process Applet

This applet draws a Gamma process (a stochastic process with independent increments X(s + t) - X(s).) Click the mouse in the window to start zooming. Click again to stop. The total increase occurs at a countable set of jumps. The simulation gives some idea of this.
