Some great objects for helping to understand social science research methods and statistical processesInternet Advertising E-Commerce Calculator
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=90001
A JavaScript calculator that calculates revenues for three different modes of electronic commerce advertising. These include advertising revenues from other web sites, based on advertising impressions (CPM) or click-throughs to advertisers' sites, and commissions on sales resulting from referrals to other sites.The web site explains the following parameters that are relevant to the various modes: visitors per month, CPM rate, minimum visitors per month to qualify for CPM, click through rate, payment per click, minimum payment size, buyers as percent of click-throughs, average sale value, and commission rate. The calculator requires the user to input the items from the above that are relevant to the particular mode.Web Searching, Sleuthing and Sifting

http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=77664
This is a complete online workbook that introduces the use of computer simulations in applied social research designs. There are two versions of each of the simulations, one accomplished manually (by rolling dice) and the other done using the MINITAB statistical package. The major two-group, program-comparison designs (randomized experiment, regression-discontinuity, nonequivalent group design) are simulated and the issue of regression artifacts is studied.Java Applets
