4434Chance Teaching Aids
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=90110
This is a site that contains a number of types of material that can be used in teaching about chance probability. Lesson plans, syllabi, suggested activities, and data sets are available. The data sets contain interesting information for students such as: quarterback passing rating data, baseball streaks, and baseball salaries that can be used to illustrate means, medians, etc.Sales Versus Profit Maximization
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=315202
The Virtual Learning Arcade is a series of models and simulations on various economics and business topics. Each simulation has a range of supporting materials including interactive worksheets, theoretical explanations and multiple choice questions. This simulation is based on the Baumol sales maximisation model and looks at sales and profit maximisation.Solving System of Equations with Application to Matrix Inversion
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=79973
This JavaScript solves up to ten by ten systems of linear equations. It also allows the user to find the inverse of a matrix.Concepts in Economic Evaluation
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=327211
This course describes how economic theory is linked to economic evaluation techniques like cost-benefit and cost-effectiveness analysis and to introduce students to many concepts that are specific to economic evaluation. Introduces students to the many varieties of economic evaluation to establish a common terminology. Discusses cost-benefit with a demonstration of how this type of evaluation is most clearly linked to economic theory. Explores other theories and concepts, including cost measurement, benefit valuation, and incremental decision-making. Finally, explores recommendations on performing economic evaluations that are made in the United States with a focus on how these are related to underlying economic theory and other concepts. Included are a syllabus, lecture material, readings, and assignments.Confidence Intervals for Two Populations
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=82015
A JavaScript that constructs confidence intervals for difference in means and the ratio of variances for two populations, based on two sets of random observations and a desirable confidence level.Econometrics
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=437977
״This free textbook offers a simple survey over the most basic concepts that are studied within introductory courses in econometrics. The theory is clarified with numerous examples. Subjects as basic probability and statistics, statistical inference with the simple and multiple regression model, dummy variables and auto correlation are explained.״JavaScript Learning Objects for Statistics
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=79909
A collection of classified JavaScript learning objects to enhance learning statistical concepts.Measuring for Accuracy
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=77955
Observed-Predicted paired data are considered for computing the well-known measures of accuracy in predictions.Modeling Bounded Rationality
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=558188
״The notion of bounded rationality was initiated in the 1950s by Herbert Simon; only recently has it influenced mainstream economics. In this book, Ariel Rubinstein defines models of bounded rationality as those in which elements of the process of choice are explicitly embedded. The book focuses on the challenges of modeling bounded rationality, rather than on substantial economic implications.״ PredInt.xls

Regression analysis can be used to make forecasts. Prediction intervals put confidence intervals around a forecast. Microsoft Excel's statistical tool pack does not do this. I wrote a macro in Visual Basic to do multiple regression with interactive prediction intervals, meaning that the intervals are automatically recalculated whenever you change the value of a predictor (independent) variable, or the confidence level. The macro also produces scatter plots and a normal probability plot. (Excel's normal probability plot is incorrect.)
