Project Title CCTeLe8 (Continuity Correction Teaching And Learning Aid)
Project Category Innovation
Abstract In Statistics course, executing Normal Approximation to Binomial or Poisson Distribution involves the need to apply continuity correction, specifically when we apply continuous function to approximate a discrete one. The simple steps of modifying (adding or subtracting 0.5) the discrete x-value are made complicated by the various interval situations. Some students may take longer time to decide the right interval when solving problems. CCTeLe8 is innovated to overcome the problem faced by the students and can be used to enhance students’ understanding in these topics. Through this aid, students can visualize the correct conversion for all the nine transformation cases. It helps students who have difficulty in identifying an appropriate continuity correction. This method has already been implemented in classes and evaluated using pre-post test design. The comparatively much higher post test score indicates significant improvement. Additionally, this product can be assembled easily and at minimal cost. We believe it will benefit individuals involved in learning the above topics.
