This page contains a collection of online java applets written by John Marden (supported by grants from the National Science Foundation and the Sloan Center for Asynchronous Learnings Environments). The data analysis applet provides basic sample statistics, histograms, scatterplots, and a graphical depiction of a bivariate regression line for a variety of data sets or user-supplied data. Playing with the regression model should help to provide a nice understanding for what regression analysis is all about.
