• ### Correlation Applet

The applets in this section allow you to see how different bivariate data look under different correlation structures. The Movie applet either creates data for a particular correlation or animates a multitude data sets ranging correlations from -1 to 1. The Creation applet allows the user to create a data set by adding or deleting points from the screen. This page was formerly located at http://www.stat.vt.edu/~sundar/java/applets/Correlation.html
• ### Control Charts

The applets in this section allow you to see how the common Xbar control chart is constructed with known variance. The Xbar chart is constructed by collecting a sample of size n at different times t. The process is considered to be out of control if the sample mean of the current sample falls above or below the control limits. The user has the options to change each parameter individually and all at once. This page was formerly located at http://www.stat.vt.edu/~sundar/java/applets/ControlCharts.html
• ### Experimental Design

The applets in this section demonstrate basic issues of experimental design. The Poor Experimental Design ignores randomization rules and allows for increased experimental error. The Improved Experimental Design offers improvement over the first design by adding randomization and reducing experimental error. Both applets require the input of several participants. The purpose of the applets is to test the reaction times between a participant's dominant and non-dominant hand.

• ### Data Collection Articles: Journal of Statistics Education

The Journal of Statistics Education disseminates knowledge for the improvement of statistics education at all levels, including elementary, secondary, post-secondary, post-graduate, continuing, and workplace education. It is distributed electronically and, in accord with its broad focus, publishes articles that enhance the exchange of a diversity of interesting and useful information among educators, practitioners, and researchers around the world. The intended audience includes anyone who teaches statistics, as well as those interested in research on statistical and probabilistic reasoning. All submissions are rigorously refereed using a double-blind peer review process.

• ### DIG Stats: Coliform Activity

In this activity, students will perform a t-test to see if fecal coliform counts collected from Blackwater Creek in Lynchburg, Virginia differ before and after rain showers. Questions about the exercise and links to Excel and TI-83 instructions are given. The data exist in Excel, TI-83, and text formats.
• ### Dataset Example: DIG Stats: Fruitfly Activity

In this activity, students will perform an ANOVA to determine if the longevity of male fruitflies is related to their reproductive cycle. The dataset contains longevity (in days) of male fruitflies in 5 groups: Alone, 1 Interested Female, 8 Interested Females, 1 Uninterested Female, 8 Uninterested Females. Questions about the exercise and links to Excel and TI-83 instructions are given. The data exist in Excel, TI-83, and text formats.
• ### DIG Stats: Correlation of Unemployment to College Enrollment Activity

In this activity, students will calculate the correlation between college enrollment at University of New Mexico and unemployment data in the state of New Mexico. They will also generate a scatterplot of the data. Questions about the exercise and links to Excel and TI-83 instructions are given. The data exist in Excel, TI-83, and text formats.
