I will be speaking about incorporating simulations early in an intro stats course to help students develop an intuitive understanding of inference well before we actually cover inference formally.
I will be discussing two StatCrunch applets that I use. One is the Coin Flipping applet which allows students to simulate gathering samples of qualitative data. The second is a resampling applet that helps students to compare two means.
I have added two assignments that I use in conjunction with these applets. You can find them under “What’s New?” on the front page of my web site http://georgewoodbury.com/.
