• ### Statistical Thinking for Managerial Decision Making

This Web site is a course in statistics appreciation; i.e., acquiring a feeling for the statistical way of thinking. It is an introductory course in statistics that is designed to provide you with the basic concepts and methods of statistical analysis for decision making under uncertainties. Materials in this Web site are tailored to meet your needs in making good decisions by fostering statistical thinking.
• ### Excel For Statistical Data Analysis

The site provides an introduction to understand the basics of and working with Excel. Redoing the illustrated numerical examples in this site will help in improving your familiarity, and as a result, increase the effectiveness and efficiency of your process in statistics.
• ### Introductory Statistics: Concepts, Models, and Applications

This goal of this resource is to aid in the understanding of the relationship between statistics and the scientific method and how it applies to psychology and the behavioral sciences. The learner will learn how to read and understand the statistics presented in the professional literature and will learn how to calculate and communicate statistical information to others.
• ### HyperStat Online Textbook

This resource contains a broad range of information concerning statistics. It is divided up into 18 chapters and also includes links to other resources pertaining to statistics.
• ### The Central Limit Theorem Applets

The applets in this section of Statistical Java allow you to see how the Central Limit Theorem works. The main page gives the characteristics of five non-normal distributions (Bernoulli, Poisson, Exponential, U-shaped, and Uniform). Users then select one of the distributions and change the sample size to see how the distribution of the sample mean approaches normality. Users can also change the number of samples. To select between the different applets you can click on Statistical Theory, the Central Limit Theorem and then the Main Page. At the bottom of this page you can make your applet selection. This page was formerly located at http://www.stat.vt.edu/~sundar/java/applets/
• ### **Tools for Teaching and Assessing Statistical Inference: Sampling SIM

This website helps students learn concepts underlying statistical inference, through the simulation software, Sampling SIM. This software lets students explore sampling distributions by building population distributions, taking random samples, and exploring the behavior of sampling distributions and confidence intervals. The site includes instructional modules and assessment instruments. Key words: measures of center, sampling, sampling distribution, confidence interval, p-values, power
• ### HyperStat Online: Ch. 4 Introduction to Probability

This chapter of the HyperStat Online Textbook presents six sections on probability including conditional probability, unions, intersections, and the Binomial distribution. A link to exercises for the chapter is available, as well as a link to an applet that demonstrates the approximation of the binomial with a normal distribution (in section 5).
• ### Z-test for difference between means

A slideshow presentation with two good examples on using the Z-test for the difference between two means. Gives some good "plain language" interepretations of what "statistically significant difference" means.
• ### Comparing Two Independent Sample Means

Textbook-like example showing the independent t-test. Gives a nice way for students to think through the problem and interpret results.
• ### One and Two-Tailed t-Tests

Gives a basic explanation with diagrams of the one and two-tailed t-tests.
