Statistics and Error Rates in Death Penalty Cases part of Examples

Nature of the chi-square distribution part of 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.

Body Measures: Exploring Distributions and Graphs Using Cooperative Learning part of 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.

Histogram Sorting Using Cooperative Learning part of 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.).

Understanding the standard deviation: What makes it larger or smaller? part of Examples

Using cooperative learning methods, this activity helps students develop a better intuitive understanding of what is meant by variability in statistics.

Economies of scale part of Examples

Working in groups of three, students analyze economies of scale. Each student constructs an individual short-run ATC curve, then the three students collaborate to determine if there are economies or diseconomies of scale and to create the long run ATC.

Counting GDP part of Examples
