The following paper details how the use of simulation can help to introduce computer intensive applications, namely bootstrapping, to a first year statistics course. The bootstrapping technique is used in creating confidence intervals for the mean, median, and variance. These bootstrap confidence intervals are compared to the traditional confidence intervals for the purpose of analyzing the accuracy of the bootstrapping technique.
