4434Power Curve Applets
https://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=1203882
These four applets demonstrate effects on the power curve for the difference in means, the difference in proportions, the mean change, and the correlation coefficient. Each applet allows users to manipulate different parameters to see the effects on power. This is a great collection of statistical calculators, perfect for either students or instructors.Wed, 27 Jul 2016 18:30:37 -0700Distribution of the Sample Sum, Sample Mean, Sample Variance, and Sample Chi-Squared
https://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=1203880
This applet, created by Philip B. Stark of the University of California, Berkeley, illustrates this concept of the sampling distribution of a statistic by simulating the sampling distribution of the sample sum, mean, variance, and chi-square. Users can choose from a normal or uniform population or can supply their own data. Relevant statistics from each sample are calculated.Wed, 27 Jul 2016 18:30:35 -0700DIG Stats: Insulation Activity
https://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=1203877
In this activity, students will generate scatter plots and use regression and logarithms to explore a dataset with time and temperature data for an insulation pack. Questions about the exercise are given at the bottom of the page as well as links to instructions for Excel and the TI-83 calculator. The data exists in TI-83 group, Excel, and text formats.Wed, 27 Jul 2016 18:30:33 -0700Finding One Variable Statistics With a Graphing Calculator
https://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=1203875
This quick YouTube video from high school statistics teacher Roger W. Davis explains how to find one variable statistics using the TI-84 graphing calculator. The demonstration goes through three steps: entering the data, finding one variable statistics using the STAT menu, and interpreting the results. The data created includes mean, sum, median and more. Flash player is required to view this video, and the running time for the clip is 3:12.Wed, 27 Jul 2016 18:30:32 -0700t-Test for Independent or Correlated Samples
https://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=1203873
This page, by Richard Lowry of Vassar College, will compute the t-test for either correlated or independent samples. One may copy and paste data in or type the data in individually. Visitors will also find a link to Lowry's companion online textbook, Concepts and Applications of Inferential Statistics.Wed, 27 Jul 2016 18:30:30 -0700Introduction to Programming Using Java

https://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=1203869
Created by staff members at the University of Arizona's Center for Recruitment & Retention of Mathematics Teachers (CRR), Do the Math is a weekly cable television show that features mathematics teachers explaining key mathematical concepts. Recently, the folks at CRR decided to create a "best of" playlist that offers segments from this popular program. Here visitors will find 18 segments that last between 26 and 38 minutes. Some of the subjects covered include geometry, advanced algebra, and calculus. Visitors may be interested in the materials on the left-hand side of the page, such as an AP Calculus practice exam, information about the related academic programs offered at the University of Arizona, and more. Also, the site contains a listserv for mathematics teachers and information on upcoming conferences that may be of interest.Wed, 27 Jul 2016 18:30:24 -0700Teachers2Teachers (Math)
https://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=1203868
Teacher2Teacher is "a peer-mentored question-and-answer service" and intended to serve as "a resource for teachers and parents who have questions about teaching mathematics." Visitors to the website can search or browse the archived discussions by topic area or grade level, ask a question, discuss math education in the Teachers' Lounge, or look up some Frequently Asked Questions. When posting a message or question, you are asked to provide your name and email. Registration is not required, but will qualify you for a free copy of their newsletter via email. Questions are answered by Teacher2Teacher Associates. The wide range of topics and levels covered here will prove helpful to students or instructors with questions on Developmental Math, ESL instruction, Logic, Calculus and many more. In addition, anyone interested in becoming a Teacher2Teacher Associate can learn more about how to apply in the About T2T section.Wed, 27 Jul 2016 18:30:22 -0700Venn Diagram Applet
https://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=1203866
In this applet, A and B are subsets of a universal set S. The list is given of the 16 different subsets of S that can be constructed from A and B using the basic set operations of union, intersection, and complement. The selected subset is colored red in the Venn diagram on the right.Wed, 27 Jul 2016 18:30:19 -0700
