Distributome Logo Logistics Overview
This day-long workshop, held in conjunction with USCOTS 2013, will introduce participants to novel web-based technologies for blended teaching of computational statistics and applied probability theory. Specifically, 50% of the time will be dedicated to training using the Probability Distributome webapps (www.Distributome.org), 25% for demonstrating the classroom use of the Virtual Laboratories in Probability and Statistics (www.math.uah.edu/stat), and 25% for exploratory data analysis using the Statistics Online Computational Resource (www.SOCR.ucla.edu). Examples of hands-on demonstrations include data modeling, exploring of properties of probability distributions and interdistribution relations, resampling and simulation, dynamic data plots, and model fitting. These topics and techniques are suitable for introductory and cross-listed applied probability and statistical methods courses. The workshop is designed to be accessible to those with little or no computational background, and will provide you with skills, examples, and resources that you can use in your own teaching.
