Experimental statistics for undergraduates - revisited
Mulligan, F. (1987) Experimental statistics for undergraduates - revisited. European Journal of Physics, 8 . pp. 53-57.
The work described here is based on a series of articles (MacLeod et al 1976, MacLeod 1976, 1980) in which a laboratory radioactive source was used as a source of random events, which enabled an investigation of the Poisson distribution to be made, and was of considerable benefit in giving undergraduate students an understanding of counting statistics.
