Against All Odds - 4. Normal Distributions
'Students will advance from histograms through smooth curves to normal curves, and finally to a single normal curve for standardized measurement, as this program shows ways to describe the shape of a distribution using progressively simpler methods. In a lesson on creating a density curve, students also learn why, under steadily decreasing deviation, todayâ€™s baseball players are less likely to achieve a .400 batting average.'

Against All Odds-5. Normal Calculations
'With this program, students will discover how to convert the standard normal and use the standard deviation; how to use a table of areas to compute relative frequencies; how to find any percentile; and how a computer creates a normal quartile plot to determine whether a distribution is normal. Vehicle emissions standards and medical studies of cholesterol provide real-life examples.'

Against All Odds - 6. Time Series
'Statistics can reveal patterns over time. Using the concept of seasonal variation, this program shows ways to present smooth data and recognize whether a particular pattern is meaningful. Stock market trends and sleep cycles are used to explore the topics of deriving a time series and using the 68-95-99.7 rule to determine the control limits.'

Against All Odds - 9. Correlation
'With this program, students will learn to derive and interpret the correlation coefficient using the relationship between a baseball playerâ€™s salary and his home run statistics. Then they will discover how to use the square of the correlation coefficient to measure the strength and direction of a relationship between two variables. A study comparing identical twins raised together and apart illustrates the concept of correlation.'

This module links human aggressive behavior with specific regions of the brain. Scenes from classic experiments show stimulation of a bullâ€™s brain to stop it from charging and excitation of a catâ€™s hypothalamus to trigger aggression. A striking case of violent human behavior is then linked to a brain lesion â€” the surgical removal of which restored normal emotion

Workshop 8: Bend and Stretch
We all expect a spring to stretch or compress when a force is applied, but forces can even deform solid objects like the floor or the top of a table. In this workshop, students in a high school classroom explore ideas about tension and normal force. By applying a force to a spring and measuring the distance the spring is stretched, the students calculate the force consta
