4434Stat2Labs
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.״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.ARTIST (Assessment Resource Tools for Improving Statistical Thinking)
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=84385
This comprehensive website provides a variety of assessment resources for teaching an introductory statistics course. The goal of the ARTIST website is to help teachers assess statistical literacy, statistical reasoning, and statistical thinking in first courses of statistics. 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.Probability/Statistics Object Library
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=79010
The Probability/Statistics Object Library is a virtual library of objects for use by teachers and students of probability and statistics. The library contains objects of two basic types, applets and components.An applet is a small, self-contained program that runs in a web page. Applets are intended to illustrate concepts and techniques in an interactive, dynamic way. A teacher or student can download an applet, drop it in a web page, and then add other elements of her own choice (such as expository text, data sets, and graphics). The applets in the library contain essentially no mathematical theory and thus can be used by students at various levels. The applets are intended to be small "micro worlds" where students can run virtual versions of random experiments and play virtual versions of statistical games.Components are the building blocks of applets and of other components. The Java objects are of three basic types: virtual versions of physical objects, such as coins, dice, cards, and sampling objects; virtual versions of mathematical objects, such as probability distributions, data structures, and random variables; user-interface objects such as custom graphs and tables. The Java objects can be used by teachers and students with some programming experience to create custom applets or components without having to program every detail from scratch, and thus in a fraction of the usual time. In addition, the components are extensively documented through a formal object model that specifies how the components relate to each other.Each object can be downloaded as a Java "bean" that includes all class and resource files needed for the object. An object in the form of a Java bean can be dropped into a builder tool (such as JBuilder or Visual Cafe) to expose the properties and methods of the object. Each object can also be downloaded in the form of a zip file that includes the source files and resource files for the object.Java Demos For Probability and Statistics
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=76993
Java applets on: Introduction to Probability Models, Hypergeometric Distribution, Poisson Distribution, Normal Distribution, Proportions, Confidence Intervals for Means, The Central Limit Theorem, Bivariate Normal Distribution, Linear Regression, and Buffon’s Needle.Khan Academy (Math Portion)
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=371570
Thousands of FREE, short, online videos that are focused on explaining and modeling the learning of specific topics in math (basic arithmetic and math to calculus), statistics, biology, physics, chemistry, finance, and other topics. The topics cover K-12 levels and higher education. The simple and clear presented information enables learners to see and review the topics and how to solve the problems at their pace with as much practice as they wish. In particular there are over a thousand videos just for mathematics. The site also contains a handful of interactive mathematics learning objects that are of the drill and practice type.ANOVA: Testing Equality of Means
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=77962
A JavaScript that tests a claimed on equality of means of three independent populations based on three sets of random observations one from each populations.Bayesian Revised Probability
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=76971
It is JavaScript that computes Bayes' posterior discrete probabilities given a subjective prior probability vector and the reliability matrix obtained from an expert judgment. Applications to decision analysis with maximum number of nine states of nature are also included.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.Data and Story Library: Stories by Method
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=90113
This site contains an online library with datafiles and stories that demonstrate the use of statistical methods. Instructors can use the "stories" and datafiles to create real world examples that will interest students. The list here is organized by Method, but one can search the material by Topic or Data Subject as well.
