Abstract Teaching some concepts in statistics greatly benefits from individual practice with immediate feedback. In order to provide such practice to a large number of students we have written a simulator based on an historical event: the loss in May 22, 1968, and subsequent search for the nuclear submarine USS Scorpion. Students work on a simplified version of the search and can see probabilities change in response to new evidence. The simulator is designed to assist in the teaching… Continue Reading

ABSTRACT The cost and time of pharmaceutical drug development continue to grow at rates that many say are unsustainable. These trends have enormous impact on what treatments get to patients, when they get them and how they are used. The statistical framework for supporting decisions in regulated clinical development of new medicines has followed a traditional path of frequentist methodology. Trials using hypothesis tests of “no treatment effect” are done routinely, and the p-value < 0.05 is often the… Continue Reading

## tandfonline.com – Why Bayesian Ideas Should Be Introduced in the Statistics Curricula and How to Do So

Uncheck the box to turn MathJax off. This feature requires Javascript. Click on a formula to zoom. Abstract While computing has become an important part of the statistics field, course offerings are still influenced by a legacy of mathematically centric thinking. Due to this legacy, Bayesian ideas are not required for undergraduate degrees and have largely been taught at the graduate level; however, with recent advances in software and emphasis on computational thinking, Bayesian ideas are more accessible. Statistics curricula need to continue to evolve and students at all levels should be taught Bayesian thinking. This… Continue Reading
