Using simulation on the Internet to teach statistics

Ng, V.M. and Wong, K.Y. (1999) Using simulation on the Internet to teach statistics. The Mathematics teacher, 92 (8). pp. 729-733.

Abstract

Ng and Wong share some reflections about using simulation on the Internet to teach statistics. The main reason for using Internet resources to complement traditional lecture-tutorial presentations is that those resources include an enormous amount of useful instructional materials and constitute an exciting new medium that stimulates students to think about concepts rather than just follow procedures, recipe-style.
