Using Your Hair to Understand Descriptive Statistics part of Testing Conjectures:Examples

The purpose of this activity is to enhance students’ understanding of various descriptive measures in statistics. In particular, students will gain a visual understanding of means, medians, quartiles, and boxplots without doing any computations by completing this activity.

An In-Class Experiment to Estimate Binomial Probabilities part of Testing Conjectures:Examples

This hands-on activity asks students to conduct a binomial experiment and calculate a confidence interval for the true probabiity. It is useful for involving students, and for having a discussion about the interpretation of confidence intervals and the role of sample size in estimation.

Seeing and Describing the Predictable Pattern: The Central Limit Theorem part of Testing Conjectures:Examples

This activity helps students develop a better understanding and stronger reasoning skills about the Central Limit Theorem and normal distributions. Key words: Sample, Normal Distribution, Model, Distribution, Variability, Central Limit Theorem (CLT)

Correlation Guessing Game part of Games:Examples

In this game activity, students match correlation values with plots generated by the applet. Competition in this game setting encourages students to become more involved in the classroom and attainment of learning objectives.

Interpreting Graphical Displays of Univariate Distributions part of Gallery Walks:Examples

Students give practical interpretation of graphs based on shape, center, and spread.

Investigating the Modernity of the University Library part of Campus-Based Learning:Examples

Students will investigate the modernity of the university library by designing and implementing a complex survey design.

Measuring Study Effectiveness part of Inventing and Testing Models:Examples

This model-eliciting activity challenges students to operationally define a construct (study effectiveness). Students are given a survey to review that rates different aspects of study behaviors. They are then ...

Identifying a Theft Suspect part of Inventing and Testing Models:Examples

empty

Using an Applet to Demonstrate a Sampling Distribution part of Interactive Lectures:Examples

Introducing sampling distribution through cooperative learning among students using a group activity. Afterwards, use the sampling distribution applet to illustrate.

Psychic test part of Interactive Lectures:Examples

Show relative frequency converging to true probability by testing the psychic ability of your students.
