Histogram Sorting Using Cooperative Learning part of Cooperative Learning:Examples
Intended as an early lesson in an introductory statistics course, this lesson uses cooperative learning methods to introduce distributions. Students develop awareness of the different versions of particular shapes (e.g., different types of skewed distributions, or different types of normal distributions), and that there is a difference between models (normal, uniform) and characteristics (skewness, symmetry, etc.).
Body Measures: Exploring Distributions and Graphs Using Cooperative Learning part of Cooperative Learning:Examples
This lesson is intended as an early lesson in an introductory statistics course. The lesson introduces distributions, and the idea that distributions help us understand central tendencies and variability. Cooperative learning methods, real data, and structured interaction emphasize an active approach to teaching statistical concepts and thinking.
Understanding the standard deviation: What makes it larger or smaller? part of Cooperative Learning:Examples
Using cooperative learning methods, this activity helps students develop a better intuitive understanding of what is meant by variability in statistics.
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.
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.
Statistics and Error Rates in Death Penalty Cases part of Cooperative Learning:Examples
How well can hand size predict height? part of Cooperative Learning:Examples
This activity is deigned to introduce the concepts of bivariate relationships. It is one of the hands-on activities of the ‘real-time online hands-on activities’. Students collect their own data, enter and retrieve the data in real time. Data are stored in the web database and are shared on the net.
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
