Histogram Applet


Drag the triangular pointer to change the width of the histogram bins.

 

(If you are viewing this from behind a firewall, chances are that your webmaster has configured your security so that JAVA functions only on your intranet, and not across the web.  So right now you are looking at a gray square, or maybe not even that, which isn't nearly as entertaining as the actual applet.)

You can find out more about histograms, and other statistical learning exercises including the "Let's Make a Deal" applet, at this  University of South Carolina website.
