 **Guess the Correlation Applet This applet generates a scatterplot each time the user clicks "New Sample". Users can then guess the correlation from the graph and see the actual value. By clicking "Edit data" users can input... http://www.rossmanchance.com/applets/guesscorrelation/GuessC...
 *Correlation Guessing Game In this game activity, students match correlation values with plots generated by the applet. Competition in this game setting encourages students to become more involved in the classroom and... http://serc.carleton.edu/sp/cause/games/examples/13892.html
 *Influence of Outliers on Correlation This activity begins with an instructor demonstration followed by a student out-of-class assignment. Students will observe their instructor create a scatterplot and observe how the correlation... http://serc.carleton.edu/sp/cause/datasim/examples/17733.htm...
