Website: the site for Basic Practice of
Statistics 5th ed. is http://bcs.whfreeman.com/bps5e

I know we'll use these applets:

One Variable Statistical Calculator
Simple Random Sample: (p. 207)
Probability For a fair coin, leave probability at .5. It accumulates tosses until you hit Reset.
Also Confidence interval
P-value of a test of significance
Excel spreadsheets: (also
in computer labs Mac 101, 110: Class Material/Math151-Moore5e)
TableA(Normal), TableC(t distribution)
(What happens in normal distribution tails, beyond z = 3.49? NormalTails.htm)
Regression and correlation:
Regression, least squares
Slope of the regression line
Normal and Xbar, compared
Normal and t compared
two-sample t procedures (Ch. 18)
HANDOUTS (not all handouts are
web-able. Look in the white
folder outside my door for paper.)
SPSS handouts from SPSS page Datasets there also.
Density handout and Solutions!
Normal probability practice
Least squares best fit line:

dist; Central limit
(do Sample: Animated sample; Distribution of means: n =5, then n = 25. Do Sample 5, 1000, 10000 after idea is clear. )
