Since retiring in December, 2012, I no longer teach formal classes at Indiana University. Nonetheless, I continue to teach hundreds of thousands of students annually through the Web.

Learn through simulations
  • The Cost of Borrowing Money: Did you know that if you borrow $50,000 at 8% interest, and pay it back over 20 years, you will pay over $50,000 in total interest! Change numbers and see what happens.
  • Make Decisions with Sequential Observations: How quickly can you choose one alternative over another by sequential sampling? Demonstration of Bayesian reasoning with Wald's Sequential Probability Ratio Test (SPRT).
  • The Diffusion Simulation Game (Version 1): How many teachers can you get to adopt an innovation? (about an hour or less for each time you play, works in any browser)
