Stimulating simulations

Anna‐Marie Martin, Department of Statistics, University of Auckland presented her workshop on ‘Stimulating Simulations” at the 2015 NZAMT conference Back to Basics, held in Auckland.

Anna’s presentation covered, why do we use simulations, and what aspects of simulations are important (and fun!) for our students to learn about?

There are teaching and learning contexts presented where simulations are the only way to answer a problem based on random variation.

Anna has developed a an online simulation tool for modeling probability which helps students predict and answer “what if” questions from simulated data.

Please contact Anna if you have any questions about the probability modelling software or her workshop.
