Abstract [en]

The Poisson distribution is here used to illustrate transformation and bootstrap techniques in order to construct a confidence interval for a mean. A comparison is made between the derived intervals and the Wald  and score confidence intervals. The discussion takes place in a classroom, where the teacher and the students have previously discussed and evaluated the Wald and score confidence intervals. While step by step  interactively getting acquainted  with new techniques,  the students will learn about the effects of e.g. bias and asymmetry and ways of dealing with such phenomena. The primary purpose of this teacher-student communication is therefore not to find the  best possible interval estimator for this particular case, but rather to provide a study displaying a teacher and her/his students interacting with each other in an efficient and rewarding way. The teacher has a strategy of encouraging the students to take initiatives. This is accomplished by providing the necessary background of the problem and some underlying theory after which the students are confronted with questions and problem solving. From this the learning process starts. The teacher has to be flexible according to how the students react.  The students are supposed to have studied mathematical statistics for at least two semesters.
