## Exploring Correlation

These are two excellent interactive sites for exploring correlation.

Exploring Correlation
A flash program. The student can move sliders to change the number of points and the correlation coefficient. Points on the scatterplot can be dragged to see how that affects the correlation coefficient. Three thumbs up!

Correlation Demo
A java applet. Students can change the number of points and the correlation coefficients, as well as add points. They can also plot the regression line and the residual plot. Three thumbs up!

## Correlation and Regression

Add some points to the scatterplot. The applet will calculate the correlation coefficient and the sum of squares. You can also choose to show the least-squares regression line and the x-mean and y-mean lines. Very instructive!

## Correlation

This is a great little interactive activity. Four scatterplots are displayed along with four correlations. Match them!
