Graph Predictions for Position, Velocity and Acceleration part of Just in Time Teaching:Examples

Graphical Just-in-Time-Teaching questions for use before classes in which students explore position, velocity and acceleration graphs.

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.

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.

Statistics and Error Rates in Death Penalty Cases part of Cooperative Learning:Examples

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.

The Standard Model: Using CERN output graphics to identify elementary particles part of Just in Time Teaching:Examples

After using the historical development of the Standard Model to develop introductory understanding, students link to OPAL and DELPHI data archives from CERN to identify and study the tracks from elementary particles.

Angular Momentum Experiment part of Just in Time Teaching:Examples

After using the historical development of concepts of conserved motion to develop introductory understanding, students are directed to a series of activities to gain a better understanding of momentum, conservation of momenta, angular momentum, and conservation of angular momenta.

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.

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.

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.
