For a variety of introductory audiences, there are strong practical and pedagogical reasons for the early teaching of statistical interval methods that are often treated as "advanced" topics, if at all. There are also simple, effective ways of making this early introduction. This expository article discusses the elementary teaching of one-sided statistical intervals, prediction intervals, and tolerance intervals for both (one-sample) nonparametric and (general) normal theory contexts.
