Chapter 9 Chapter 9 Experimental Research (Reminder: Don’t forget to utilize the concept maps and study questions as you study this and the other chapters.) In this chapter we talk about what experiments are, we talk about how to control for extraneous variables, and we talk about two sets of experimental designs (weak designs and strong designs). (Note: In the next chapter we will talk about middle of the road experimental designs; they are better than the weak designs discussed in this chapter, and they are not as good as the strong designs discussed in this chapter. The middle of the road, or medium quality designs are called quasi-experimental designs.) It is important for you to remember that whenever an experimental research study is conducted the researcher's interest is always in determining cause and effect. The causal variable is the independent variable (IV) and the effect or outcome variable is the dependent variable (DV). The Experiment Independent Variable Manipulation Counterbalancing

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.

Social Reserch Methods Home Useful Web Sites for Teachers With so many web sites available, it is hard for teachers of statistics to select those that are most useful. The following is a compilation of information by members of the ASA/NCTM Joint Committee on the Curriculum in Statistics and Probability. You may wish to visit these sites and see which are appropriate for your teaching level. General Sites Statistics Education Web (STEW) is a free, online bank of peer-reviewed lesson plans for K-12 teachers of mathematics and science. Census at School - U.S. is a free international classroom project that engages students in grades 4 to 12 in statistical problemsolving using their own real data.

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.

MA121: Introduction to Statistics Probabilities affect our everyday lives. In this unit, you will learn about probability and its properties, how probability behaves, and how to calculate and use it. You will study the fundamentals of probability and will work through examples that cover different types of probability questions. These basic probability concepts will provide a foundation for understanding more statistical concepts, for example, interpreting polling results. Though you may have already encountered concepts of probability, after this unit, you will be able to formally and precisely predict the likelihood of an event occurring given certain constraints. Probability theory is a discipline that was created to deal with chance phenomena. The skill of calculating probability allows us to make better decisions. We will also talk about random variables.

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.
