• ### Statistical Literacy Curriculum Design

A specially-designed statistical literacy course is needed for college students in majors that don't require statistics or mathematics. This paper suggests that key topics in conditional probability, multivariate regression and the vulnerability of statistical significance to confounding should be included and presents some new ways to teach these ideas.
• ### Virtual Manipulative: Box Plot

This is a Java Applet, which allows you to load your personal data and edit data. It provides interval and endpoint values and the option to view as a histogram.
• ### Analysis Tool: The BUGS Project

The BUGS (Bayesian inference Using Gibbs Sampling) project is concerned with flexible software for the Bayesian analysis of complex statistical models using Markov chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) methods. This site is primarily concerned with the stand-alone WinBUGS 1.4.1 package, which has a graphical user interface and on-line monitoring and convergence diagnostics. This program can be downloaded for free from the site.

• ### Flying Bomb Hits on London

This project examines the randomness of clusters using the Poisson Distribution. Using Microsoft Excel, the activity simulates the bombs of London and examines the occurences per cell to estimate lambda.
• ### A Brief Overview of Switching Theory and Practice

This powerpoint presentation from INFORMS Applied Probability Society provides a brief overview of switches, routers, input-queued crossbars, combined input- and output-queued switches, buffered crossbars, and algorithms for bandwidth partitioning, security, encryption, and deep packet inspection.
• ### Long Range Dependence

This tutorial presentation from INFORMS Applied Probability Society covers the long range dependence (or long memory)property of certain stationary stochastic processes.
• ### Introduction to Probability

This introductory probability textbook, freely available here in pdf format, emphasizes the use of computing to simulate experiments and make computations. A set of programs that go with the book and the answers to the odd-numbered problems are also available from this site. Chapter headings include: Discrete Probability, Continuous Probability Densities, Combinatorics, Conditional Probability, Distributions and Densities, Expected Value and Variance, Sums of Random Variables, Law of Large Numbers, Central Limit Theorem, Generating Functions, Markov Chains, and Random Walks.
• ### SurfStat Australia

This website serves as an online textbook for introductory statistics, covering topics such as summarizing and presenting data, producing data, variation and probability, statistical inference, and control charts.
• ### Stat-Attic Statistics Applets for Teaching Topics in Introductory Courses

This site contains links to and descriptions of over 600 applets that can be used for demonstrations or analysis of topics commonly covered in introductory statistics courses.

• ### Analysis Tool: One Arm Binomial

This page calculates either sample size or power for a one sample binomial problem. Users choose between a one-sided and two-sided test and specify the null and alternative hypothesized proportions. The calculator also gives the critical value.
