Using an Applet to Demonstrate the Sampling Distribution of an F-statisticpart of CAUSE Teaching Methods: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.
Using an Applet to Demonstrate a Sampling Distributionpart of CAUSE Teaching Methods:Interactive Lectures:Examples Introducing sampling distribution through cooperative learning among students using a group activity. Afterwards, use the sampling distribution applet to illustrate.
Correlation Guessing Gamepart of CAUSE Teaching Methods:Games:Examples In this game activity, students match correlation values with plots generated by the applet. Competition in this game setting encourages students to become more involved in the classroom and attainment of learning objectives.
