This activity leads students to appreciate the usefulness of simulations for approximating probabilities. It also provides them with experience calculating probabilities based on geometric arguments and using the bivariate normal distribution. We have used it in courses in probability and mathematical statistics, as well as in an introductory statistics course at the post-calculus level.
The purpose of this out-of-class project or in-class example is to determine the shelf life of a new drug. This is done through using simple linear regression models and correctly interpreting confidence and prediction intervals. An Excel spreadsheet and SAS program are given to help perform the analysis.
Each example is preceded by a scale played on the piano and then the note relative to the tonic of the scale. The user can try different notes to match the one played and can then show the answer.

Students apply the analytical skills that they use when reading literature to an exploration of the underlying meaning and symbolism in Hieronymous BoschŐs early Renaissance painting "Death and the Miser".
Hyperspace Berlin is an interactive set of maps, popup information screens containing text, critical essays documenting and analyzing critical people and places, architectural structures, and cultural moments in the history of Berlin. The earliest map is from 1237 and the latest is from 2003.
This site will provide access to the results of our long-term project of creating an extensive collection of the Plan of St. Gall (Codex Sangallensis 1092). In addition to a variety of digital representations of the plan itself, the collection will include detailed information on each element of the plan, its contemporary context and its impact on early medieval monastic architecture and culture.
