• ### 2 x 2 Contingency Tables

This applet simulates experiments using 2 x 2 contingency tables. You specify the population proportions and the sample size and examine the effects on the probability of rejecting the null hypothesis.
• ### Dataset Example: Reliability and Regression Analysis

This applet demonstrates how the reliability of X and Y affect various aspects of the regression of Y on X.
• ### Histograms, Bin Widths, and Cross Validation

This applet demonstrates how a histogram is affected by bin width and starting point of first bin. It also illustrates cross-validation criterion for assessing histograms.
• ### Regression to the Mean

This is a simulation illustrating the regression toward the mean phenomenon.
• ### JAVA Comparing distributions

This simulation shows recorded response times on a simple motor task under two conditions. Various statistics and graphs used to compare the distributions are presented.
• ### Unequal n ANOVA and Types of Sums of Squares

This simulation illustrates types of sums of squares in a 2 x 3 ANOVA.
• ### Robustness of t test and ANOVA

This applet lets you explore the effect of violations of the assumptions of normality and homogeneity of variance on the type I error rate and power of t tests (and two-group analysis of variance).
• ### Weapons and Aggression

This case study addresses the question: "Does the mere presence of a weapon increase the accessibility of aggressive thoughts?" It concerns the following concepts: quantile and box plots, stem and leaf displays, one-sample t test, confidence interval, within-subjects ANOVA, and consequences of violation of normality assumption.
• ### Magnets and Pain Relief

This case study assesses the question, "Can the application of magnetic fields be an effective treatment for pain?" It addresses concepts including: boxplots, stem and leaf displays, correlated t-test, two-sample t-test, repeated measures analysis of variance, and analysis of covariance.
• ### Data Collection: Data Cleaning Assignment

This activity guides students through the process of checking the validity of data, performing summary analysis, constructing box plots, and determining whether significant differences exist. The data comes from a study of mineral levels in older adults and is available in Minitab, Excel, SAS, and text formats.
