Ten Websites Every Statistics Instructor Should Bookmark

Journal of Statistics Education Information Service - contains links to several statistical education organizations, newsletters, discussion groups and, especially, the online Journal of Statistics Education (JSE) and the JSE Dataset Archive.

The CHANCE Project - resources with an emphasis on using current news media as motivation for studying issues in probability and statistics.  A highlight of this website is the monthly Chance News  abstracting recent articles from newspapers and magazines.

DASL - The Dataset and Story Library - a collection of datasets and related documentation (stories) which may be searched by data subjects or by statistical techniques.  One of the web's premier sources of data intended for use in statistics instruction.

JAVA Applets - links to interesting online applets for demonstrating statistical concepts.  Compiled at Duke University, but provides links to many sites. The list of contributors at the bottom of the page is a good place to browse to find other applet sites.

Exploring Data - an excellent collection of links and resources for teaching an introductory level course. Part online text, part online course materials, and all well-presented by Rex Boggs at Glenmore HS in Rockhampton, Australia.

CTI Statistics Website - (Now part of the Maths, Stats & OR Network) has an emphasis on the use of computers in teaching statistics and includes a rich set of reviews of statistical software from a teaching perspective.  The Centre is associated with the Statistics Department at the University of Glasgow.

Statistical Instruction Internet Palette (SIIP) -(now in a different place and form) a project devoted to developing web resources for teaching statistics. Directed by John Behrens at Arizona State University.  One of the nicest collection of links to loads of WWW data sources is this site's  Dr. B's Wide World of Web Data.

 FEDSTATS - Billed as the "One-Stop Shopping" source for governement data with links to more than 70 federal agencies.  Be sure to try the A to Z link.

Statistics on the Web - links to more general statistical resources on the web, with a good section related to teaching statistics. Put together by Clay Helberg at SPSS, Inc.

WWW Resources for Teaching Statistics - outline from Robin Lock's talk at the 1998 Technology in Statistics Education Conference sponsored by the Boston Chapter of the ASA at Babson College.  Contains all the links mentioned above and a whole bunch more.
