A Computational Approach to Investigate Properties of Estimators
Caudle, Kyle A.; Ruth, David M.
Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, v32 n4 p381-393 Oct 2013
Teaching undergraduates the basic properties of an estimator can be difficult. Most definitions are easy enough to comprehend, but difficulties often lie in gaining a "good feel" for these properties and why one property might be more desired as compared to another property. Simulations which involve visualization of these properties can be extremely insightful. Experience has shown that students enjoy this approach and ultimately come away with a better understanding of the material presented.
