Stochastic Challenge

As a part of a National Science Foundation Transforming Undergraduate Education in Science (NSF-TUES) grant involving Texas Tech, Missouri University of Science and Technology, and the University of Texas - Pan American, Dr. Tim Matis, associate professor of industrial engineering, has developed a new tool called the Stochastic Challenge.

The tool is a resource for students or anyone wanting to learn more about applied stochastic processes and can be found at www.stochasticchallenge.org. The site includes video tutorials for learning how to apply stochastic processes in real-world contexts, a wiki-style encyclopedia that anyone can edit, and web-based calculators for performing common calculations.
