Nature of the chi-square distribution part of Cooperative Learning:Examples
Explaining the chi-square and F distributions in terms of the behavior of variables constructed by generating random samples of normal variates and summing the sqaures of the values.
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.
Using an Applet to Demonstrate Sampling Distributions of Regression Coefficients part of Interactive Lectures:Examples
This applet simulates a linear regression plot and the corresponding intercept and slope histograms. The program allows the user to change settings such as slope, standard deviation, sample size, and more.
Count the Fs: Why a Sample instead of a Census? part of Interactive Lectures:Examples
This interactive lecture activity motivates the need for sampling. "Why sample, why not just take a census?" Under time pressure, students count the number of times the letter F appears in a paragraph. The activity demonstrates that a census, even when it is easy to take, may not give accurate information. Under the time pressure measurement errors are more frequently made in the census rather than in a small sample.
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.
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.
Interpreting Graphical Displays of Univariate Distributions part of Gallery Walks:Examples
Students give practical interpretation of graphs based on shape, center, and spread.
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
