Title: Using an Applet to Demonstrate Sampling Distributions of Regression Coefficients
Url: http://serc.carleton.edu/sp/cause/interactive/examples/17126.html
Creator: Woodard, Roger
Publisher: Carleton College (Northfield, Minn.)
Description: This visualization activity combines student data collection with the use of an applet to enhance the understanding of the distributions of slope and intercept in simple linear regression models. The applet simulates a linear regression plot and the corresponding intercept and slope histograms. The program allows the user to change settings such as slope, standard deviation, sample size, and more. Students will then see theoretical distributions of the slope and intercept and how they compare to the histograms generated by the simulated linear regression lines.
