### Other Resources

Using the R software
in an introductory statistics course. (Should I? and How?)

Sortware help for an intro. stats. course consisting of
worked examples using Minitab, Data Desk and variants of R to
carry out most of the procedures in a year-long
intro. stats. course. (The R resources are a fuller version of
those linked above.) Also useful for anyone who wants a large
nubmer of examples of computer output to use with students.

TI graphing calculator
resources with an emphasis on statistics and on older or odder
calculators. The place to go if one of your students has a TI
model you are not familiar with! Most of the instructional
resources are from William Larson. I started hosting them after
they were repeatedly orphaned on the Internet.

Examples for teaching paired vs.
independent samples. (New version improved by Rachel Braun in a
Word doc file.)

Answers for above examples for teaching
paired vs. independent samples.

Using Minitab to analyze paired or
independent sample data.

Using transformations on a single
variable.
