Exploring Correlation

Build data sets and manipulate points to discuss how variables are correlated (includes the Correlation Coefficient, the Coefficient of Determination, and linear relationships).

Developed by Thomas Hoffmann with Michael Russell at inTASC.

Thanks to Dr. Goldberg, Dr. Ludlow, Dr. Pedulla, and Stacey Raczek for their statistics help. Special thanks to Craig Hoyle for finding the formulas to generate the data sets and correlating them to each other.
