 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 usersupplied data. Playing with the regression model should
help to provide a nice understanding for what regression analysis is all about.
