Webinar: Taking your Class for a Walk ... Randomly
An important idea in statistics is that the amount of data matters. Often this is taught with formulas  the standard error of the mean, the tstatistic, etc.  in which the sample size appears in a denominator as √n. This is fine, so far as it goes, but it often fails to connect with a student's intuition. This webinar describes a kinesthetic learning activity  literally a random...
