http://www.causeweb.org/cwis/index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=1051This section of an online textbook discusses the correlation coefficient and illustrated it visually through graphs. It explains calculations as well as how scatter plots can describe data. It covers significance tests for relationships, the Spearman rank correlation and the regression equation. Exercises and answers are included.Fri, 15 Jul 2005 03:51:22 -0400**Guess the Correlation Applet
http://www.causeweb.org/cwis/index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=1443
http://www.causeweb.org/cwis/index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=1443This 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 their own data. Users can also determine the number of points in the plot.Mon, 20 Jun 2005 01:27:33 -0400Least Squares Regression Applet
http://www.causeweb.org/cwis/index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=1444
http://www.causeweb.org/cwis/index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=1444This applet shows a scatterplot of height versus foot length. Users can add or delete points and then guess the regression line by clicking "Your Line" and moving the blue regression line. By clicking "Regression Line" users can see the actual regression line. The applet also shows the correlation and R-square for the data as well as the residuals and squared residuals for the guessed regression line and the actual regression line.Mon, 20 Jun 2005 01:27:33 -0400Quantitative Environmental Learning Project

http://www.causeweb.org/cwis/index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=946This assignment asks students to explore a set of data which is positively skewed. The data come from a survey of college students asking how vulnerable they feel about the loss of a parent.Fri, 13 May 2005 11:58:24 -0400Components of r
http://www.causeweb.org/cwis/index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=624
http://www.causeweb.org/cwis/index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=624As described on the page itself: "The simulation shows a scatterplot of data from a bivariate distribution in which the relationship between the two variables is linear. You can change the "input" values of slope, standard error of the estimate, or standard deviation of X for this data sample, and see the effects of your change.

http://www.causeweb.org/cwis/index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=625
http://www.causeweb.org/cwis/index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=625In this demonstration a scatterplot is displayed and you draw in a regression line by hand. You can then compare your line to the best least squares fit. You can also try to guess the value of Pearson's correlation coefficient.Thu, 12 May 2005 04:23:07 -0400Star Library: Regression - Residuals - Why?
http://www.causeweb.org/cwis/index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=914
http://www.causeweb.org/cwis/index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=914Residual plots and other diagnostics are important to deciding whether or not linear regression is appropriate for a set of data. Many students might believe that if the correlation coefficient is strong enough, these diagnostic checks are not important. The data set included in this activity was created to lure students into a situation that looks on the surface to be appropriate for the use of linear regression but is instead based (loosely) on a quadratic function.
