Web Resources for Interactive Probability Instruction


This two-hour webinar, part of the 2014 eCOTS meeting, will introduce participants to novel web-based technologies for blended teaching of computational statistics and applied probability theory. The presenters will discuss the Probability Distributome webapps (www.Distributome.org), classroom use of the Virtual Laboratories in Probability and Statistics (www.math.uah.edu/stat), and exploratory data analytics using the Statistics Online Computational Resource (www.SOCR.umich.edu). Examples of hands-on demonstrations include data modeling, exploring of properties of probability distributions and inter-distribution 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.
