EESEE is designed to be a resource for educators and an aid for students in the study of statistics. It is intended to serve as a supplement to introductory textbooks written for students with varying degrees of mathematical backgrounds.

EESEE is now written in Authorware and it may be used on either a PC or a MAC. An HTML version of EESEE is currently under development.

EESEE currently includes over 80 "real-world" stories, or examples, about the uses and abuses of statistics and statistical inference, drawn from published and printed media encompassing a wide range of subject-matter areas.

Each story is accompanied by problems, graphics, and, in most cases, data sets portable to various statistical software packages. Some stories are also accompanied by video clips.


Some of the stories in EESEE are:
"Trilobite Bites"
a study of the scars on trilobite fossils to determine if trilobites exhibited traits similar to right- or left-handedness

"Fear of Buildings on Campus"
a study which looks at whether or not the architectural style of a building makes people perceive the buildings as safe or dangerous

"Doctor-to-Patient HIV Spread"
an examination of how likely it is for doctors who are infected with HIV to infect their patients unintentionally

"Home Field Advantage?"
an examination of World Series Data to determine if teams are more likely to win games played at their home fields

"Blood Alcohol Content"
a study which explores the relationship between blood alcohol content and other variables such as amount of alcohol consumed, weight, gender and age.

EESEE currently contains over 2000 pages that present a synopsis of each problem, a description of the data, links to a statistical package to analyze the data, visual aids including pictures, maps, and video clips, a bank of questions pertaining to the problem, solutions to those problems, subject-matter references, and statistical references and links to indices of several text books.
