Teacher Resources - World of Statistics Demand for statisticians and data analysts is expected to increase by 4.4 million jobs worldwide in the years ahead. To teach students basic statistics literacy and introduce them to careers in the profession, many organizations have devel­oped primary and secondary school statistics education programs and resources, most of which are free. Click the links below to view the resources available around the world. Census at School Program Census at School is a free, web-based classroom project that engages primary and secondary school students in statistical problem solving using their own data. Under the direction of their teacher, students anonymously complete an online survey consisting of 13 questions common to all children and several questions specific to their country. New Zealand launched the 2013 renewal of its Census at School program May 6. Click on the Census at School links below to view the program in your country or others around the world.

ModernDive Getting Started - For Students This book was written using the bookdown R package from Yihui Xie (Xie 2016). In order to follow along and run the code in this book on your own, you’ll need to have access to R and RStudio. You can find more information on both of these with a simple Google search for “R” and for “RStudio.” An introduction to using R, RStudio, and R Markdown is also available in a free book here (Ismay 2016). It is recommended that you refer back to this book frequently as it has GIF screen recordings that you can follow along with as you learn. We will keep a running list of R packages you will need to have installed to complete the analysis as well here in the needed_pkgs character vector. You can run the library function on them to load them into your current analysis. Colophon The source of the book is available here and was built with versions of R packages (and their dependent packages) given below.

Statistics Instructors By Cynthia Brame, CFT Assistant Director Teaching Statistics Statistical analysis is a critical tool in many fields, and as such, it is taught in courses across many disciplines. Svetlana Tishkovskaya and Gillian Lancaster recently reviewed research on statistics education as well as web-based resources in the field (Tishkovskaya and Lancaster, 2012). Students learn best what they practice and perform on their own.Knowledge tends to be specific to the context in which it is learned.Learning is more efficient when students receive real-time feedback on errors.Learning involves integrating new knowledge with existing knowledge.Learning becomes less efficient as the mental load students must carry increases. The authors note that developing an active learning environment is essential to integrating these principles into a course.

Probability & Statistics Probability & Statistics [Enter Course] Overview: This course introduces students to the basic concepts and logic of statistical reasoning and gives the students introductory-level practical ability to choose, generate, and properly interpret appropriate descriptive and inferential methods. We offer two versions of statistics, each with a different emphasis: Probability and Statistics and Statistical Reasoning. One of the main differences between the courses is the path through probability. In-Depth Description There are two versions of the OLI Statistics course: Probability and Statistics and Statistical Reasoning. Unit 1 Exploratory Data Analysis. Unit 2 Producing Data. Unit 3 Probability. Unit 4 Inference. The course is built around a series of carefully devised learning objectives that are independently assessed. This course contains only the StatTutor lab exercises.

McDonald's home page Research Interests The overall theme of the research in my lab is detecting the effects of natural selection on nuclear genes. This includes detecting the effects of balancing selection and directional selection on variation within populations, variation among populations, and variation among species, and it includes a mix of empirical and theoretical work. Prospective Students I am not seeking a graduate student or post doc for my lab at this time. I will be glad to advise UD undergrads and others with an interest in evolutionary biology who are planning to apply to graduate schools. Current Projects Statistical tests for adaptive evolution of proteins to different temperatures: When protein sequences from two species are compared, the neutral theory of molecular evolution predicts that the number of amino acid sites that differ in one direction should be equal to the number of sites that differ in the opposite direction.
