Title: Histograms, Bin Widths, and Cross Validation
Url: http://www.ruf.rice.edu/~lane/stat_sim/histogram/index.html
Creator: Lane, David M.
Publisher: Rice University
Description: Created by David Lane of Rice University, this applet demonstrates how a histogram is affected by bin width and starting point of first bin. It also illustrates cross-validation criterion for assessing histograms. The author structures the lesson in this fashion: instruction, descriptions of datasets and finally, exercises. Additionally, the applet works with six different data sets. These consist of: Old Faithful, Sosa home, Sosa away, arm strength, grip strength and a choice of entering your own data. Overall, this is a nice hands-on approach to learning this statistical method.
