• ### The Little Handbook of Statistical Practice

This site describes what to do with data sets instead of simply presenting theory and methods as they appear in standard textbooks. It emphasizes statistical practices.
• ### Dataset Example: DIG Stats: Fruitfly Activity

In this activity, students will perform an ANOVA to determine if the longevity of male fruitflies is related to their reproductive cycle. The dataset contains longevity (in days) of male fruitflies in 5 groups: Alone, 1 Interested Female, 8 Interested Females, 1 Uninterested Female, 8 Uninterested Females. Questions about the exercise and links to Excel and TI-83 instructions are given. The data exist in Excel, TI-83, and text formats.
• ### DIG Stats: Laminated Composites Activity

In this activity, students will perform a two-way ANOVA to determine if there is a difference in the amount of pressure (in Mpa) it takes to break two different types of laminated composites under wet or dry conditions. Questions about the exercise and links to Excel and TI-83 instructions are given. The data exist in Excel, TI-83, and text formats.
• ### Dataset Example: DIG Stats: Acid Rain Activity

In this activity, students will perform a one sample t-test to see if the pH level of rain collected by the EPA is less than the pH standard for acid rain (5.6). Questions about the exercise and links to a t-test applet and TI-83 instructions are given. The data exist in Excel, TI-83, and text formats.
• ### Dataset Example: DIG Stats: Airport Activity

In this activity, students will calculate the correlation and generate a scatterplot of the number of passengers flying and the number of performed departures from 135 airports in the US. Questions about the exercise and links to Excel and TI-83 instructions are given. The data exist in Excel, TI-83, and text formats.

• ### Regression to the Mean

This is a simulation illustrating the regression toward the mean phenomenon.
• ### 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).
