As a teacher, my goals are to get every student excited and motivated to learn the material and to engage them in a discussion of that material that leads to a deeper understanding of both the details and the big picture concepts involved. By really involving them in this discussion, we can foster the critical thinking and problem solving skills they need to succeed not only in the classroom, but in other aspects of life as well.Read More
Prior/posterior example. Corresponds to Mathematical Statistics and Data Analysis section 3.5, example E, by John Rice. Flipping a coin 30 times and observing # of Heads. Likelihood is a binomial. You can alter the Beta prior on Theta = P(Heads).
Metropolis Hastings visualization for the same example as the Basic Bayes App.
Normal Approximation to the Binomial distribution and to the Poisson distribution.
Applet to visualize sampling distributions of different statistics from differing parent populations.
Applet that simulates the distribution of an order statistic from a beta distribution random sample. The joint distribution is also visualized as well.
Power applet to demonstrate ideas for a one sample mean test from a normal population with known variance.
Applets to teach intro stats using the randomization based approach.
Applets to accompany the book Statistics Unlocking the Power of Data, another randomization based approach to intro stats.
Game based resources for teaching intro stats.
The Probability Distributome Project is an open-source, open content-development project for exploring, discovering, navigating, learning, and computational utilization of diverse probability distributions.
