The Evolution of Pearsons Correlation Coefficient/Exploring Relationships between Two Quantitative Variables part of Interactive Lectures:Examples

The evolution of ideas is often ignored in the teaching of statistics. It is important to show students how definitions and formulas evolve. This activity describes a fairly straightforward activity of how measures of association can evolve.

Models of the Hydrogen Atom part of Interactive Lectures:Examples

In this interactive lecture, models of the hydrogen atom are explored using an online Java applet. The exploration leads to qualitative and quantitative analysis of energy transitions.

Helping Students Discover Total Internal Reflection part of Interactive Lectures:Examples

Students learn the basic relationship of Snell's Law, practice applying it to a situation, then are given another situation where it "doesn't work."??? This situation turns out to be one in which total internal reflection occurs. Students are then shown what happens with classroom apparatus.

Using an Applet to Demonstrate the Sampling Distribution of an F-statistic part of Interactive Lectures: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.

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

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

Learning to Think about Gravity: Newtons's Theory part of Interactive Lectures:Examples

The purpose of this exercise is to learn how to think about gravity, learn about scientific methodology, and transition from the Aristotelian to the Newtonian understanding of gravity.

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.

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.

Psychic test part of Interactive Lectures:Examples

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