  25. Comparing Distributions

  26. Teaching Tips • Ways of using the simulations • In class • Computer lab • Homework • Make students active • Spoon feeding can make students feel good but not learn much • Require students to anticipate results before they are presented • Spoon feeding is often ineffective
