4434StatCrunch
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=74665
The package was created to solve many of the problems which exist with the delivery and use of modern statistical software. Many times statisticians develop procedures in languages such as Splus, SAS, Minitab, etc.., which are very specific to statisticians. Students and other potential users may not have access to these languages, and therefore may not be able to use the procedures. By using Java and the World Wide Web, StatCrunch should reach the broadest possible audience of any statistical software of its kind. StatCrunch was chosen as the 2005 Classics Award winner for the Statistics discipline for several reasons. StatCrunch allows any student with internet access the ability to have a reasonably full featured statistical analysis program for minimal cost. This means that students who are taking courses through distance education can now have the same software as students on campus. Students who are working on a statistics assignment at home can now have the same software as they would in a lab on campus. We also believe that StatCrunch represents the beginning of a paradigm shift. As time moves forward we believe that most introductory statistics courses will be taught not with installed software but with internet based software. It is proof that the major obstacles that stand in the way of integrating statistical software into the introductory classroom can be surmounted.Rossman/Chance Applet Collection (Statistics/Probability)
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=89688
A collection of applets designed to illustrate various topics in statistics and probability. Topics include Simulating Confidence Intervals for Population Parameter, Behavior of Regression Line, Reeses Pieces, Histogram Bin Width, Sampling Senators, Sampling Pennies, Dotplot Summaries, Guess the Correlation.Stat2Labs
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=447977
The site includes guided interdisciplinary labs for first and second courses in statistics. As stated on the homepage for this site, "This site presents workbook-style, project-based material that emphasizes real world applications and conceptual understanding. This material is designed to give students a sense of the importance and allure of statistics early in their college career. By incorporating many of the successful reforms of the introductory statistics course into a wide range of more advanced topics we hope that students in any discipline can realize the intellectual content and broad applicability of statistics.״ARTIST Assessment Builder
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=85256
A searchable database of more than 1000 test questions for introductory statistics concepts. The user is prompted to select subject material and learning outcome expectations from a variety of question formats and then downloads the items and can edit the test with a word processor. IMPORTANT NOTE: When you initially click on the link to get to the ARTIST website, you may be directed to a page that indicates the need to accept a certificate in order to view the ARTIST site. This is due to some recent changes related to the server where ARTIST is currently housed. If you accept this certificate, you should then be able to get to the ARTIST site. Eventually, ARTIST will be housed on the CAUSEweb site.National Library of Virtual Manipulatives
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=76833
Large collection of platform independent, interactive, java applets and activities for K-12 mathematics and teacher education.Guessing Correlations
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=74393
Demonstrates Correlation Coefficients in Statistics.Simulating Confidence Intervals
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=221221
This applet allows users to generate confidence intervals for either means or proportions. Users set the parameters including the number of samples and click "Sample." The applet graphs the intervals such that intervals containing the true mean or proportion are in green, while intervals not containing the true mean or proportion are in red. The true mean or proportion is shown by a blue line.Normal Distribution Calculator
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=79523
Given a mean and standard deviation, this applet illustrates the normal distribution and the probability between two given values.The Binomial, Normal, and Poisson Distributions Compared
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=78577
This applet graphs the Poisson and normal approximations to a specified binomial distribution. The user may select the values of n and p to be used.Introductory Statistics / Collaborative Statistics
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=334307
Introductory Statistics is the next generation of Collaborative Statistics and was written by Barbara Illowsky and Susan Dean, faculty members at De Anza College in Cupertino, California. The textbook was developed over several years and has been used in regular and honors-level classroom settings and in distance learning classes. This textbook is intended for introductory statistics courses being taken by students at two and four year colleges who are majoring in fields other than math or engineering. Intermediate algebra is the only prerequisite. The book focuses on applications of statistical knowledge rather than the theory behind it.
