1. Gordon, Florence. and Gordon, Sheldon. "Sampling + Simulation = Statistical Understanding: Dynamic Graphical Simulations in Excel" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the Mathematical Association of America, The Fairmont Hotel, San Jose, CA, Aug 03, 2007 <Not Available>. 2017-12-11 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p206153_index.html>
Publication Type: Conference Paper/Unpublished Manuscript
Abstract: This presentation will illustrate the use of interactive graphical simulations in Excel for investigating a wide variety of random processes and sampling distributions that arise in introductory statistics courses including simulations of:
▸ various probabilistic processes such as coin flipping and dice rolling;
▸ the normal, binomial and other distributions;
▸ the Central Limit Theorem;
▸ confidence intervals and hypothesis testing;
▸ regression and correlation analysis.
The talk will emphasize a variety of ways that such graphical simulations in Excel can be used effectively to promote student understanding of two of the key themes in statistics – randomness and variability between samples and the long-term patterns that arise as sample size increases. The speakers will describe their use, particularly as classroom demonstrations, to increase student understanding of otherwise difficult concepts and methods, to provide tools by which the students can personally discover the underlying statistical concepts, and to "justify" or validate the statistical theory.

Abstract: Teaching the dynamics of world politics requires dynamic teaching methods. Students often engage in simulations to learn dynamic processes. These simulations, however, are almost always prepared for them, and lose direct ownership by students. An even more direct engagement with global practice can be had when students write the simulations themselves. This paper describes a course in which several small groups of students write (and revise) simulations in which all students participate (at the end of the semester). Although the success of this method relies upon the diversity of available material (globalization entails a diverse array of interdisciplinary perspectives and practices), the method might also be useful in other contexts. I argue for the value of the method by analyzing its underlying principles.

Abstract: Simulations provide complex, dynamic, and interactive learning environments for science learning and teaching. However, the process of how students are engaged in scientific problem solving with simulations is less investigated than the outcome of learning. The purpose of the study was to explore the learning process involved in inquiry with simulation and investigate key features of simulation that influence student inquiry in chemistry classrooms. A total of 109 high school students participated in the study. Four common themes were identified as critical aspects of simulation relevant to student inquiry: (1) immediate visualization, (2) abundant practice for experiment, (3) situated interaction and negotiation, and (4) virtual modeling and reality. The findings of this study demonstrate implications of dynamic simulation process.

"The Baseball Simulator: Accurately Simulating Major League Baseball Games with a Minimum Number of Statistics" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the Mathematical Association of America, The Fairmont Hotel, San Jose, CA, Aug 03, 2007 <Not Available>. 2017-12-11 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p206503_index.html>
Publication Type: Conference Paper/Unpublished Manuscript
Abstract: We will present a model (The Baseball Simulator) for simulating major league baseball games and seasons based on team (rather than individual) statistics. The model was motivated by the desire to create an accurate simulation model that employs as few statistics as possible. We will present a statistical overview comparing Baseball Simulator results and actual major league results for the seasons 1901 - 1993. We will also present results of a Baseball Simulator Ultimate Baseball League season where every major league from 1901 to 1993 plays every other team from the same timespan to determine an overall best Baseball Simulator major league team. Finally, we will share a related classroom activity where students employ probability concepts in the design of their own teams that compete in dice-roll baseball games.

Abstract: While the use of simulations to teach negotiation theory and issues in
international relations has become more common, using them to focus on a
wider variety of political science topics is still rare. Further, a
format for general social science simulation creation that can be
readily used by educators does not exist. To address these issues, this
paper explores the effective integration of simulations into a course,
and suggests a useful pedagogical framework—focusing on the choice
between educating students about process or content—for building social
science simulations. Finally, the paper presents web-based software to
facilitate the creation of simulations (face-to-face or
computer-mediated) based on the framework.
