This set of pages is an introduction to Maximum Likelihood Estimation. It discusses the likelihood and log-likelihood functions and the process of optimizing.
This journal article gives examples of erroneous beliefs about probability. It specifically examines the belief that a random sample must be representative of the true population.
This part of the NIST Engineering Statistics Handbook contains case studies for Exploratory Data Analysis. Some of the topics include normal and uniform random numbers, reliability using airplane glass failure times, and analysis of primary factors using ceramic strength.
This online, interactive lesson on foundations provides examples, exercises, and applets which review the algebra of sets and functions, general relations with special emphasis on equivalence relations and partial orders, and some basic combinatorial structures such as permuations and combinations.
This online, interactive lesson on distributions provides examples, exercises, and applets which explore the basic types of probability distributions and the ways distributions can be defined using density functions, distribution functions, and quantile functions.
This online, interactive lesson on expected value provides examples, exercises, and applets in which students will explore relationships between the expected value of real-valued random variables and the center of the distribution. Students will also examine how expected values can be used to measure spread and correlation.
