Designed as a supplementary resource, these modules utilize humor,
cartoons, and engaging storylines to reduce student anxiety and
maximize understanding of topics covered in introductory statistics
courses. Research has shown that humor can combat the anxiety that
often leads to academic disengagement (Berk, 1996).
This interactive CD-ROM supplement is availble for $24.95 and was
developed with faculty at Columbia University, Fordham University, and
City University of New York with the goal of exploring ways in which
technology can enhance
students' learning experiences.
Comprised of five fun, cartoon-based modules (each 10 to 15 minutes
long), this series covers topics such as normal distributions,
confidence intervals, the chi-square contingency test, and the test of
two means. Each module also includes a study guide, assessment quizzes,
and interactive exercises.

It was developed by an educational courseware company called Kognito
with strong roots in academia.
