A Story-Based Simulation for Teaching Sampling Distributions
Turner, Stephen; Dabney, Alan R.
Teaching Statistics: An International Journal for Teachers, v37 n1 p23-25 Spr 2015
Statistical inference relies heavily on the concept of sampling distributions. However, sampling distributions are difficult to teach. We present a series of short animations that are story-based, with associated assessments. We hope that our contribution can be useful as a tool to teach sampling distributions in the introductory statistics classroom.
