|Dynamic demonstrations to help foster an understanding of the graphing and variance for data sets. Create a histogram and show the variance; show the mean, variance, and correlation of self-selected data points; understand variance by creating data sets; for grade data, show a histogram and variance; and compile a piechart by finding angles and percentages of the whole. These demos require the Flash 6 player. Download the binaries for PC or Macintosh. See also Allen's Flash demos for understanding physics, which include a tool for drawing polygons and dynamically calculating their areas and perimeters.|
