# Year 13 Statistics Workshop 2002

## STATS 101 A/B INFORMATION

• STATS 101A/B is a pdf document which describes the standard introductory Stage One Statistics course designed for well prepared Year 13 students and teachers wanting to prepare for teaching the Mathematics with Statistics Course.

## LESSONS

The following files are *.doc Word documents which can be modified:

• CLTSamplingDist1: A lesson idea (Part I) for using in conjunction with the Central Limit Theorem applet.
• CLTSamplingDist2: A lesson idea (Part II) for using in conjunction with the Central Limit Theorem applet.
• CombiningRVs: A lesson idea for using in conjunction with the Dice Experiment applet.
• Newton-Raphson: A lesson idea for using in conjunction with the Newton-Raphson applet.
• Statistics NZ document: for Time Series data, CPI and Index Numbers.

## JAVA APPLETS

To add the applet to a web page on your intranet, you must insert an APPLET tag (which will have structure similar to the code below) in an html file, at the point where you want the applet to appear:

```<APPLET CODE="SamplingApplet.class" ARCHIVE="sampDist.jar" width="700" height="350"></APPLET>```

To find the correct code for a particular applet, view the applet from Matt & Julie's page on the browser and under 'View' on the menu, select 'Source' and scroll until the applet code appears.

The jar file and the html file must be in the same folder.

This width and height dimensions are simply suggestions and can be varied. Generally, components such as graphs and tables expand and contract proportionally, while components such as buttons, scrollbars, dice, and coins are fixed in size.

## Requirements

Some of the applets require a browser that supports the Java 2 platform and the Java Swing components. We recommend the latest versions of Internet Explorer or Netscape, with the Java plug-in.

If you go to a page with an applet and you do not have the proper plug-in, you should be prompted automatically to download the plug-in. If this does not happen, download and execute the Java plug-in given here Java 2.
