• ### Types of Surveys

This site discusses survey questionnaires and interviews, provides links to detailed descriptions and pros and cons of each, and describes how to conduct them.
• ### Survey Design

This site takes the user through the steps and decisions necessary when designing a survey. Pros and cons for each method are outlined and other issues in survey design are presented.
• ### Design of Experiments & ANOVA

This site lists definitions of key terms related to experimental design and ANOVA, including factorial, blocking, interaction, and others. This site is part of the "Statistics Glossary" for the STEPS project (STatistical Education through Problem Solving).
• ### Factorial Design

This site explains the 2x2 factorial experimental design, it's components, and it's effects. Graphs illustrate the concepts discussed.
• ### 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/
• ### Statistical Java

This is a collection of applets regarding various topics in statistics. Topics include Central Limit Theorem, Probability Distributions, Hypothesis Testing, Power, Confidence Intervals, Correlation, Control Charts, Experimental Design, Data Analysis, and Regression. Each topic has a description page and links to one or more applets. This page was formerly located at http://www.stat.vt.edu/~sundar/java/applets/
• ### ** Sampling Distributions

This applet simulates and plots the sampling distribution of various statistics (i.e. mean, standard deviation, variance). The applet allows the user to specify the population distribution, sample size, and statistic. An animated sample from the population is shown and the statistic is plotted. This can be repeated to produce the sampling distribution of the statistic. After the sampling distribution is plotted it can be compared to a normal distribution by overlaying a normal curve. These features make it useful for introducing students in a first course to the idea of a sampling distribution. The site also includes instructions and exercises.

• ### Poem: Statistics

Statistics is a poem by Canadian physician Neil Harding McAlister (1952 - ). The poem contains material that can help with class discussions about sample surveys, medical experiments, and significance testing.
• ### Practice Problems: t-tests

Gives four practice problems on the t-test. Gives both the data sets and the mean and standard deviations if you did not want to compute them. Requires students to interpret and reason through some of their answers.
