Using an Applet to Demonstrate the Sampling Distribution of an F-statistic part of Examples
This visualization activity combines student data collection with the use of an applet to enhance the understanding of the distributions of mean square treatment (MST), mean square error (MSE) as well as their ratio, an F-distribution. Students will see theoretical distributions of the mean square treatment, mean square error and their ratio and how they compare to the histograms generated by the simulated data.

Helping Students Discover Total Internal Reflection part of Examples
