The author provides charts, graphs and diagrams to help illustrate these concepts. http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/j.1467-9639.1979....
 Hypothesis Testing and Proof by Contradiction: An Analogy Created by C.A. Reeves and J.K. Brewer, the "proof by contradiction" in mathematics, provides a reasonable parallel to the concept of hypothesis testing and in the process helps students see the fallacy of believing that the null hypothesis, H0, is true when they have simply failed to reject it. The authors state, "Concerned statistics instructors are constantly on the lookout for examples and... http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/j.1467-9639.1980....
 CUSUM: Computer Simulation for Statistics Teaching The use of computers for simulation can be used not only to introduce CUSUM (cumulative sum) techniques but also to improve students' understanding of statistical inference and decision making. This article describes the use of CUSUM (1977). The authors first provide an outline, the target population, the aims, an example, time required, a summary and external references. This is a nice lesson... http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/j.1467-9639.1980....
 Probability in a Primary School This reference material, created by Philip Sherwood, provides various activities and tasks, which help elementary aged children understand the concepts of probability. The author has a nice series of diagrams intertwined within the text to help illustrate these concepts. http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/j.1467-9639.1979....
