Rivers: Short In-class Activity part of Examples

Images of the James River in Virginia, including one at flood stage, and of potholes, all of which can be used to have the students make observations, estimates, and interpretations.

Using an Applet to Demonstrate Sampling Distributions of Regression Coefficients part of 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.

Using an Applet to Demonstrate a Sampling Distribution part of 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 Examples

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

Count the Fs: Why a Sample instead of a Census? part of 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.

The Transformer: Simulation Lecture Demo part of Examples

The activity presents an interactive lecture demonstration of the operation of a transformer using a simulation.

Measuring voltage and current in a DC circuit part of Examples

These exercises target student misconceptions about how to properly measure voltage and current in simple DC circuits by letting them investigate different meter arrangements without fear of damaging equipment. These activities also are designed to lead to other investigations about simple DC circuits.

Motion Concepts: Displacement, velocity, & acceleration graphs part of Examples

Projectile and Satellite Orbits part of Examples

Gravitation introductory activity with interesting animation. The activity allows the student to revile the connection between the initial speed and the shape of satellite orbit.

Science on a Skateboard - Applications of Newton's Third Law part of Examples

A think, pair, share activity with Socratic questioning to help students begin to understand rocket propulsion.
