Simulations on Spreadsheets for Complex Concepts: Teaching Statistical Power as an Example.
Black, Thomas R.
International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, v30 n4 p473-81 Jul-Aug 1999
Describes the use of spreadsheets as an alternative means of teaching complex mathematical concepts through simulation using the topic of the statistical power of tests as an example. Through the simulation it is possible for the learner to explore the design factors that influence power. Also provides a simple way of calculating power as a planning tool. Contains 15 references.
