• ### Two-Sample t-Test for Equal Means (Engineering Statistics Handbook)

Gives textbook-like explanation with some real-life data to compute a t-test and determine if two population means are equal. Also has some links for case studies and a web-based program called Dataplot. There is a printer-friendly version on the main homepage (see source).
• ### 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.
• ### Statistics at Square One: The t tests

Gives very detailed explanation of t-tests (confidence intervals, one-sample, two sample independent, two sample paired, pooled and unpooled variances). Discusses the assumptions that are made for each type of t-test. This topic is part of an online textbook.
• ### Against All Odds

The Against All Odds video series provides an extensive introduction to statistics. It consists of 26 half hour video episodes that include lecturing on statistical topics, animations of statistical topics and video of real world examples. The series is available online or can be purchased on VHS video tape. The statistical material in the series was supervised by Dr. David Moore and accordingly much of the material echos the language used in Moore's textbooks. Topics covered include most topics from an introductory statistics course and slightly more advanced topics such as seasonal variation, blocking of experimental designs and even Chernof faces. The material is very well suited for students in undergraduate statistics classes.
• ### Boxplot

This activity allows users to create and manipulate boxplots for either built-in data or their own data. Discussion, exercise questions, and lesson plans regarding boxplots are linked to the applet.
• ### Scatter Plot (Engineering Statistics Handbook)

An explanation of scatter plots, their use, purpose and interpretation. It provides examples of the various relationships described by scatter plots as well as case studies and related techniques.
• ### Histogram

This activity allows the user to create and manipulate histograms with built-in or user-specified data, and provides links to discussion and exercise questions. The mean and standard deviation of each data set are also calculated and the bin width of each histogram can be changed by the user.
• ### Independent Group t-Test

This tutorial on the Two Sample t test includes its definition, assumptions, hypotheses, and results as well as tests for equal variance and graphical comparisons. An example using output from the WINKS software is given, but those without the software can still use the tutorial. An exercise is given at the end that can be done with any statistical software package.
• ### Martindale's Calculators

This comprehensive collection of calculators provides users with resources for everything from introductory statistics to advanced statistical methods. Users can search by the following categories: Dictionaries, Courses with Calculators and Applets, Courses All Inclusive, and Statistics A-Z. Users can also search by the following statistical specialties: Agriculture, ANOVA, ANCOVA, Bayesian, Economics, Employment, Health, Information & Library Science, Psychology, Reliability Modeling, Research: Marketing and Opinion, Sampling Analysis, and SAS.
• ### Central Limit Theorem

This tutorial illustrates the basic principles of the Central Limit Theorem and enhances conceptual understand of why the Central Limit Theorem is important to inferential statistics.
