What are efficient, engaging, and modern pedagogical techniques to teach probability theory and applications that leave lasting impressions on learners? The probability Distributome project has developed portable, browser-accessible and extensible resources including:
- Computing probability and critical values for a wide array of distributions
- Exploring probability distribution properties and inter-distributional relations
- Fitting probability distribution models to data
- Virtual resampling and simulation experiments
- Integrated data, web-applications and learning-activities
- Introductions and opening slides
- What is the Distributome Project?
- Distributome Website: as an open-access and open-development resource
- Distributome Navigator (exploring probability distribution properties and inter-distributional relations)
- Distributome Tools
- Calculators (computing probability and critical values for a wide array of distributions)
- Interactive Experiments
- Distributome as an educational resource: Distributome Activities
- Open Discussion/Community Feedback
The Distributome project is funded in part by the National Science Foundation (NSF) grants 1023115, 1022560, and 1022636.
