Application of Java on Mathematical Statistics Education

by Su, Yi-Che

Abstract (Summary)
In the recent years, the internet has been developed rapidly. By this convenient medium, the information can be spread easily all over the world. Using the convenience and variety of internet, e-learning has become a burgeoning and efficient way for learning. The main idea of e-learning is applying the concept of Asynchronous Course Delivery, and establishing a learning environment on the internet. With the connection between computer and the internet, user can learn more in a convenient environment. In order to apply the concept of e-learning to the course of statistics, we use the Java programming language to establish an on-line interactive environment. In addition to learn some fundamental concepts of statistics, learner can also strengthen the abilities of researching and surfing by themselves. In this paper we developed six interactive examples. Not only interpreting and illustrating, we also introduce the motive, goal, relative concepts and applications in detail for each example. Finally, we hope that user can easily learn more knowledge of statistics by this learning environment, then our e-learning to statistical education, can be achieved.
