Fantastic!!!  I am excited to use the 1970 Draft / Lottery example in the PDF version of the text.

The information is clear and simply stated. The site is well organized I didn't feel overloaded with info like on the Fibonacci number site. I think the simulation app could be very useful to teachers, and plus the cases presented could be used to enhance class material and are very interesting. Hw. has practice reviews, and visual demonstrations for in class learning enhancement.

We use this material in our intro stats course and it works great. More specifically we use the confidence interval and the sampling distribution simulations.

So i was reading over some of these cases and they seem to work. the ones i read had to do with common sense. i am huge on common sense and if people dont have it, it usually annoys me. so when i was reading these cases and saw that it can be used like this in math, it made me smile(like my case i read) and glad to know im not the only one. i would definatley use this in the classroom because it shows students that there is much more to math then just complicated numbers and formulas.

The Java Applets in the Simulations/Demonstrations area are good. Some students may require background information on using the simulation. Relevancy is not always clear to a novice.

As a middle-aged beginning doctoral student, I was 30 years away from my last Stats course. I sometimes have problems visualizing concepts. This site explains many key concepts and provides excellent visuals. Clear & concise.
