• ### DataCounts!

DataCounts! is an interactive website designed to help integrate social statistics into the classroom setting. Each collection contains a wide variety of datasets that can be viewed online with WebCHIP. DataCounts! also houses a collection of teaching modules that have been created by teachers across the country to integrate social science data into their classes.
• ### StatVillage

StatVillage is a hypothetical village in Canada. Homes in StatVillage are laid out in a system of blocks on a rectangular grid with 8 homes per block. In the middle of each group of 8 homes is a playing area. Houses are addressed using a block and unit-within-block system. Services (e.g. food stores, shops) are located on the periphery of the village and are not shown on the map. Households can be selected for a survey by using a clickable map.
• ### Case Studies in Statistics

This site lists a set of case studies that cover regression topics, random number calculations of pi, as well as limit theorems. On the individual case study pages are the descriptions and/or instructions.
• ### Guides for Scientific Writing and Statistics

This page is a guide to writing and using statistics in the field of science. It is aimed at biology students. It contains information on formatting and the use of tables as well as links to pages about frequency analysis, t-tests, and regression.
• ### The Central Limit Theorem in Action

This applet shows balls falling through a grid of posts to show the central limit theorem in action.
• ### Exploratory Data Analysis (Engineering Statistics Handbook)

This chapter of the NIST Engineering Statistics handbook describes Exploratory Data Analysis with an introduction, a discussion of the assumptions, a description of the techniques used, and a set of case studies.
• ### Graphical Techniques: By Problem Category (Engineering Statistics Handbook)

This part of the NIST Engineering Statistics handbook describes different graphs and plots used in Exploratory Data Analysis.
• ### **Java Applets for Power and Sample Size

This collection of free, interactive Java applets provides a graphical interface for studying the power of the most commonly encountered experimental designs. Intended to be useful in planning statistical studies, these applets cover confidence intervals for means or proportions, one and two sample hypothesis tests for means or proportions, linear regression, balanced ANOVA designs, and tests of multiple correlation, Chi-square, and Poisson. Each applet opens in its own window with sliders, which are convertible to number-entry fields, for manipulating associated parameters. Controlling for the other parameters, users can change sample size, standard deviation, type I error (alpha) and effect size one at a time to see how each affects power. Conversely, users can manipulate the power for the test to determine the necessary sample size or margin of error. Additional features include a graph option by which the program plots a dependent variable (i.e. power) over a range of parameter values; the graph is automatically updated as the parameters are changed. Each dialog window also offers a Help menu which provides instructions for using the applet. The applets can be used over the Internet or downloaded onto the user's own computer.
• ### The Marble Game

The Marble Game is a "concept model" demonstrating how a binomial distribution evolves from the occurence of a large number of dichotomous events. The more events (marble bounces) that occur, the smoother the distribution becomes.
• ### Impact!

This is an exercise in interpreting data that is generated by a phenomenon that causes the data to become biased. You are presented with the end product of this series of events. The craters occur in size classes that are color-coded. After generating the series of impacts, it becomes your assigned task to figure out how many impact craters correspond to each of the size class categories.
