Some of our favorite individual JAVA applets (selected from the sites listed below):

- Guessing Correlations - a neat "game" to show the relationship between correlations and scatterplots - ten minutes should get the ideas across to almost any student. Part of the CUWU Statistical Program at Illinois-Champaign-Urbana.
- Regression - see the effects of adding an outlier (Webster West - S. Carolina).
- Histogram - check the effect of bin size on Old Faithful data (Webster West - S. Carolina).
- Effect of a "Small" Effect - visualization of the impact of a difference in group means on job candidate selection (Mark Lane - Rice).
- Power of a Hypothesis Test - nice graphical look at power for a test of a mean (Todd Ogden - S. Carolina).
- Monty Hall Problem - as implemented at UIUC lets you see how everyone else has done, while the
- Let's Make a Deal version done by Webster West is a bit quicker to play and includes an explanation.

- Globally Accessible Statistical Procedures (GASP) collected at the Univ. of South Carolina.
- Interesting JAVA Applets compiled at Duke University.

- Some Experimental
WWW Pages being developed by Juha Puranen at the Univ. Of Helsknki
includes a look at how a scatterplot
varies as correlation changes.

- Journal of Statistics Education (JSE) publishes refereed articles, datasets, reviews, and tips related to all aspects of teaching statistics at the postsecondary level. JSE has been available electronically since its founding in 1993.
- Chance News - biweekly references to statistical issues in current news media.

Web Guide to Statistical Journals -maintained by Gordon Smythe at University of Queensland, contains links to loads of stat journals (not just stat education).

- Archives
of Apstat-l This list was set-up to support high school
teachers doing an Advanced Placement course in Statistics. Lots of
good conversation about teaching an introductory course.

Archives of Edstat-l (and several other discussion lists) are maintained by the JSE Information Service. This was one of the first electronic discussion lists devoted to teaching issues. To subscribe send the message

Mike
Fuller's List of Statistical Lists A number of other e-mail discussion
lists are maintained for *specific countries* (e.g. Australia, Brazil,
Italy, New Zealand), *statistical topics* (e.g. Bayesian methods,
experimental design, time series analysis), *subject areas *(e.g.
biometry, geography, econometrics), and *software packages* (e.g.
Minitab, SPSS, SAS).

We'll divide our look at Web data into different types of resources:

- 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.

Journal of Statistics Education Data Archive Datasets contributed by statistics teachers. Raw data are in a .dat file with explanations a .doc file. Many of these datasets are tied to longer JSE articles discussing their use in statistics classes.

Statlib Dataset Archive One of the original (and still best) sources for archived data.

CHANCE Project Datasets Data from recent media coverage of current events. Only a few datasets here, but many excellent references to teaching applications of statistics in the news can be found at the main CHANCE page.

SICL - Statistics Instructional Computing Laboratory Datasets sponsored by the Statistics Dept. at N.C. State.

Minitab
Worksheet Files collected by Dennis Roberts at Penn State.

Datasets
in Excel, NCSS, or tab-delimited ASCII, with suggestions for appropriate
statistical topics - part of an excellent set of resources for Exploring
Data produced Rex Boggs.

- Dr.
B's Wide World of Web Data. An extensive collection of data sources
maintained by John Behrens (Dr. B) at Arizona State.

Data Sources Maintained by David Rosen and linked from the WWW Virtual Library: Statistics

Sports Statistics on the Web Links to websites with loads of sports data, assembled by Jim Box for the ASA's Section on Statistics in Sports.

- The
World Factbook - produced by the CIA.
Lots of statistics for each country in the world. Similar information
could be found in a good almanac, but students seem to like browsing for
it on the Web.

Bureau of Labor Statistics - lots of economic data -- an especially good source for time series data.
