# Non-symbolic math

• ### Mean and Median

This applet allows students to manipulate a histogram and observe changes in the mean and median. The site includes links to exercises and descriptions of measures of center and spread.
• ### Nonprobability Sampling

This site describes numerous methods of nonprobability sampling, including accidental, haphazard or convenience sampling and the many types of purposive methods.

• ### Design Case Study: Planning a Study

This worksheet gives students 4 excercises in designing a case study. Each exercise presents a difference scenario and asks a series of questions about study design.
• ### Types of Surveys

This site discusses survey questionnaires and interviews, provides links to detailed descriptions and pros and cons of each, and describes how to conduct them.
• ### Survey Design

This site takes the user through the steps and decisions necessary when designing a survey. Pros and cons for each method are outlined and other issues in survey design are presented.
• ### Design of Experiments & ANOVA

This site lists definitions of key terms related to experimental design and ANOVA, including factorial, blocking, interaction, and others. This site is part of the "Statistics Glossary" for the STEPS project (STatistical Education through Problem Solving).
• ### Confidence Intervals for Means Applet

This applet simulates finding confidence intervals for the mean of a normal random variable. A sample of size 20 is generated from a standard normal random variable. The blue marks represent the sample data. The sample mean X and sample standard deviation s are found and used to calculate the confidence interval. The black intervals are the confidence intervals which include the true mean 0, and the red intervals are those which exclude 0. This applet needs to be resized for optimal viewing.
• ### Easy Charts: Java Chart Components

EasyCharts is a complete library of java chart components, chart applets, and chart servlets that enable programmers to add charts and graphs in java applications, web applications, and web pages with just a few lines of code. The java chart library includes bar charts, line charts, and pie charts and is highly configurable. The java chart library supports charts with multiple data series, overlay charts, drilldown charts, and interactive features such as zooming and scrolling of chart data.

• ### Analysis Tool(s): StatCrunch

This web-based package does a very complete range of statistical calculations designed to be user friendly. Formerly known as WebStat, it provides statistical calculation functions that would be done in most introductory statistics courses. Notable examples include being able to create histograms, pie charts and boxplots, calculation of summary statistics and confidence intervals, and performing hypothesis tests. It allows data to be entered in a spreadsheet style data window or opened from a file. Cost for students and professionals is \$13 for 6 months and \$23 for 12 months (instructors have complimentary access), and it does require a login. Key Word: Calculator.

• ### One-Way ANOVA Applet

This applet demonstrates the partitioning of sums of squares in analysis of variance (ANOVA). It includes some sample values and allows the user to make adjustments, which then shows the new values in the ANOVA table. Also contains an exercise set.
