The applets in this section of Statistical Java allow you to see how levels of confidence are achieved through repeated sampling. The confidence intervals are related to the probability of successes in a Binomial experiment.
The Scientific Method:
An exercise to introduce scientific method, experimental design and basic statistical analysis.
1.4.1: Price ratios
This unit looks at a wide variety of ways of comparing prices and the construction of a price index. You will also look at the Retail Price Index (RPI) and the Consumer Price Index (CPI), indices used by the UK Government to calculate the percentage by which prices in general have risen over any given period. You wil also look at the important statistical and mathematical ideas that contribute to the construction of a price index.
Presents quantitative approaches to theory construction in the context of multiple response variables, with models for both continuous and categorical data. Topics include the statistical basis for causal inference; principles of path analysis; linear structural equation analysis incorporating measurement models; latent class regression; and analysis of panel data with observed and latent variable models. Draws examples from the social sciences, including the status attainment approach to interg
Statistics for Laboratory Scientists I
This course introduces the basic concepts and methods of statistics with applications in the experimental biological sciences. Demonstrates methods of exploring, organizing, and presenting data, and introduces the fundamentals of probability. Presents the foundations of statistical inference, including the concepts of parameters and estimates and the use of the likelihood function, confidence intervals, and hypothesis tests. Topics include experimental design, linear regression, the analysis of
Statistics - an intuitive introduction: central tendency
Statistical data have a tendency to cluster around some central point. How do we determine this point? Is there just one way of doing it or more than one?
Nanoelectronics and the Meaning of Resistance
The purpose of this series of lectures is to introduce the "bottom-up" approach to nanoelectronics using concrete examples. No prior knowledge of quantum mechanics or statistical mechanics is assumed; however, familiarity with matrix algebra will be helpful for some topics.
STP Eclipse Workspace
The STP Eclipse Workspace contains a ready to use Eclipse worksapce with source code for Statistical and Thermal Physics (STP) programs by Jan Tobochnik and Harvey Gould. Unzip this workspace and open it from within Eclipse to compile and run these programs.
9.520 Statistical Learning Theory and Applications (MIT)
Focuses on the problem of supervised learning from the perspective of modern statistical learning theory starting with the theory of multivariate function approximation from sparse data. Develops basic tools such as Regularization including Support Vector Machines for regression and classification. Derives generalization bounds using both stability and VC theory. Discusses topics such as boosting and feature selection. Examines applications in several areas: computer vision, computer graphics, t
8.251 String Theory for Undergraduates (MIT)
This course introduces string theory to undergraduate and is based upon Prof. Zwiebach's textbook entitled A First Course in String Theory. Since string theory is quantum mechanics of a relativistic string, the foundations of the subject can be explained to students exposed to both special relativity and basic quantum mechanics. This course develops the aspects of string theory and makes it accessible to students familiar with basic electromagnetism and statistical mechanics.
Statistical Calculation in Microsoft Powerpoint
In this video, six basic statistical calculations are presented in a Microsoft Powerpoint with accompanying narration. The video explores how to find the mean, median, mode, standard deviation, z scores, and p-values. examples are presented of data sets for concentration of product.
Quantitative data analysis using computer programs
With the classification and the understanding on various kinds of quantitative data, useful computer programs will be practiced for the efficient data processing. Statistical analysis, numerical analysis, data plotting will be given by using Excel, Origin, Powerpoint, VBA, OpenOffice, Google spreadsheet, Mathematica, wxMaxima, scilab and R programs for improving the presentation skill.
US Historical Climate: Excel Statistical
In this intermediate Excel activity, students import US Historical Climate Network mean temperature data into Excel from a station of their choice. They are then guided through the activity on how to use Excel for statistical calculations, graphing, and linear trend estimates. The activity assumes some familiarity with Excel. On this Starting Point page, users can access information about the exercise's learning goals, context for use, teaching notes and tips, teaching materials, assessment idea
Ward Edwards Interview
Psychologist Ward Edwards, a former faculty member of the USC College of Letters, Arts and Sciences and of the USC Viterbi School of Engineering, talks about multidisciplinary research at the University of Southern California and the development of organized research units to support research and scholarship involving multiple disciplines. Edwards was an internationally known authority on statistical decision analysis and behavioral decision research, a field he pioneered. He was founding direc
Crowds and Clouds: Data, Sheep, and Collaboration in the Works of Aaron Koblin
Where others see just data points and fodder for bar graphs, Aaron Koblin visualizes dynamic systems where information assumes forms both abstract and familiar. In this talk, Koblin shares recent projects that meld statistical science and art to convey a really big picture, while often inviting the viewer to partake in a more perso
Three More For The Road
In a trio of mini-talks, Arnold Barnett applies statistical analysis to some of society’s most confounding challenges. He first takes up the minority achievement gap -- the apparent under-performance of black and Hispanic students on standardized tests in comparison to white and Asian students.

DPLFs activities include research and training focusing on international justice, judicial accountability and transparency and equal access to justice. Details of activities and publications relati
Election 2010- what about women?
This site was created by the Fawcett Society during the 2010 U.K general election. The project brings together the main political parties along with other organisations and women voters to ask questions about political policies relating to women. The site includes the questions asked, the responses from the parties and voters.
4 Adding variables
Handling statistical data is an essential part of psychological research. However, many people find the idea of using statistics, and especially statistical software packages, extremely daunting. This unit takes a step-by-step approach to statistics software through seven interactive activities. No statistics software is needed.
