• 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.
