• ### Reading and Interpreting Tables and Graphs Involving Rates and Percentages

This survey assesses statistical literacy. The survey focuses on the general use of informal statistics in everyday situations: reading and interpreting tables and graphs involving rates and percentages.
• ### 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.
• ### **National Library of Virtual Manipulatives: Scatterplot

This Java Applet of a scatterplot allows you to enter data, move data points, define the range of values, and view graph value information.
• ### Probability, Genetics and the Human Condition

This is a three day lesson plan. The first day is an introduction to concepts in probability. The second day is an application of probability in the field of genetics. The third day is a time for students to expand their understanding of probability and genetics via short research project. The site includes resources, advice, and notes to the teacher. Probability topics include: law of large numbers, simple and compound events, sample size, sample space, and more.
• ### Explorations for the Area Probability Applet

This website provides the URL of a Java applet and steps for using it. Here, students can manipulate the size of the circle and the rectangle to explore the probability that a point in the rectangle is also in the circle.

This activity addresses the concept of sample space. It provides a multi-step procedure and three handouts, which accompany the activity. It addresses events and the availability misconception as well as grouping and forming committees.
• ### Time-Axis Fallacy and Bayes Theorem

This site provides an outline of an activity for introducing Bayes' Theorem and conditional probability.
• ### 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.
• ### Sampling SIM: Simulation Software

This program allows the student to explore the nature of sampling distributions of sample means and sample proportions. The software provides separate windows for building population distributions, drawing and viewing random samples from the population, exploring the behavior of sampling distributions of sample means, and exploring the behavior of confidence intervals.
• ### 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.
