Stats visualizations

Animated visualizations of some statistics concepts

We have put together a few interactive animations that will illustrate some important statistics concepts (with funding from the University of British Columbia). These are all released into the public domain, so anyone can use them as they wish. Click on the “tutorial” button to be walked through the concepts, or just explore them on your own.

Sampling means from a normal distribution

Confidence limits for the mean

Central Limit Theorem

Contingency analysis (This one does not have a self-guided tutorial. It may be useful in lectures as a demonstration tool.)

Here are a few shorter apps (created in R Shiny) that can help demonstrate specific points:

Unequal variance and the errors of the t-test

Visualizing residuals in regression

Developing an intuition for correlation coefficients
