To help students understand the use of conditional probability, a teacher can lead a demonstration of the Monty Hall Problem using one of the many available Internet applets.

Tutorials, such as Mrs. Glosser’s Math Goodies Lesson on Conditional Probability, can be given to students who miss a class or students that would like additional instruction.

In some self-assessment tools like Trees and Conditional Probability from Tutorials for Finite Math, students receive immediate feedback when answering questions including hints for incorrect answers and steps to correct solutions.

This slide from Sampling Distributions can help a teacher guide a discussion on when the sample mean can be assumed to be normally distributed.

This applet from Statistical Java demonstrates the convergence implied by the central limit theorem by allowing students to manipulate sample size, number of samples, and underlying distribution.

This guided applet activity from Wise includes assessment questions that, when answered correctly, allow students to proceed to new concepts.

An in-class activity from the STAR Library can help introduce the concept of regression.

Applets like this one from SticiGui Java Tools allow students to explore changes in the data to see how they affect the regression line.

Using self-tests like this one from Biometry: Statistics for Ecology, students can submit their answers and receive immediate feedback regarding questions answered correctly and questions or topics needing improvement.
