Mathematical Notation [PDF only]
This is a sequence of five documents for you to create using your favorite full-featured word processor. The object is to learn to use proper notation and also learn some statistics along the way. Instructions and demonstration videos on how to use the Equation Editor are available. There are two graphs that you'll need to create using Minitab, instructions for creating the graphs are available.
Daily Calendar [PDF only]
Complete calendar including activities, due dates, exams, and lecture schedule. This document requires the Adobe Acrobat reader.
Video Series
There is a video tape series that presents much of the material we will be covering in an exciting, sometimes eccentric, manner. You may wish to watch these as a means of reinforcing what you've heard in class or read in your book.
Lecture Notes
These online lecture notes were written for an older edition of Triola's Elementary Statistics textbook and the section numbers may not match up exactly with our text.
This is a project I wrote for an ICTCM short course in May 2002. It explains the different kinds of simulation and allows you to perform some simulations online. This corresponds to the material in chapter 11 of the text. This simulation requires MS Internet Explorer. The Javascript will not work with Netscape Navigator.
Hypothesis Testing Assessment
This page contains Flash animations to help you review the Hypothesis testing material. There are 30 definitions and 60 multiple choice questions available.
Analysis of Variance
Your printed textbook doesn't contain information on multiple regression or the two-way Analysis of Variance (ANOVA). This is a project I wrote for an ICTCM short course in August 2004. It explains the different types of ANOVA and allows offers different assessment techniques to help you learn and understand them.
TI-82 / TI-83 Programs and Instructions
Instructions for using the TI-82 or TI-83 graphing calculator.
Triola's Statistics Website
This is a link to Triola's website for the Essentials of Statistics book. You can find data sets, updated versions of Statdisk, and the formula card that comes with your textbook.

Information including office hours, education, interests, etc.

Note: All Internet access from within the College may be monitored. Using the Internet during exams is prohibited except when specifically instructed otherwise. I consider such usage to be cheating and as such is subject to the academic dishonesty policy of the College. I can identify web pages visited and who visited them.
