Day 154: Choosing the Right Procedure

One of the main staples of an AP Statistics class is prepping for the AP Exam, and one of the most challenging things for students is choosing the right inference procedure for a situation.  So Larry Green’s Categorizing Stats Problems Applet has been used extensively.  This link plays well with iPads, too!

Every year, my students comment very positively about their experiences with the applet.

Here is an example of the type of problem and the choices students can make.  When they choose correctly, they get a smiley face.  If they choose incorrectly, they get hints to help them narrow their next choice.  I advise my kiddos that initially they will be humbled, but as they continue through the problems, they will get better.  And the nice thing is, they do!
