This wiki is devoted to exploring probability and statistics topics with technology, specifically TinkerPlots. In the summer of 2017, I started using CODAP.

Common Online Data Analysis Program (CODAP) is a product of The Concord Consortium. Check out these example documents. Many of the features are similar to TinkerPlots and more tools are in development. The Getting Started information and the Forums are great resources, so check them out.

October 2017 - CODAP has added a plugins feature to the tool bar. The sampler can be found in the plugins menu.

Winter 2017 - Featured Page
CODAP Mammals Residuals
The residual plot can be used to decide if the pattern is linear and to identify influential points.

*When working in a CODAP document, be sure to save the file locally to your computer or to a Google Drive folder. When sharing a document, be sure to obtain the link through the main menu (do not copy and paste the url from the browser bar).
