The applets work just fine without a login from my link.
Here's another example:

I would be surprised if it did not also expand the understanding of numerate
students.

ViAnn,
Thanks. Looks interesting, but you have to pay to join. All my stuff is
free.
Bruce Weaver has some nice slideshows, but does anyone know of other links
to free aids for interactive stats? If anyone is interested I can send an
account [offlist] of my attempts to explain (linear) regression and
correlation using elastic bands attached from data points to a rigid pole
rotating at the intersect of mean Y and mean X. I'm not sure if the maths
is right, but it helped (nonnumerate) students to understand.

You'll find applets all over the net which interactively demonstrate
statistical concepts. Here's an example:

Perhaps I should have said, "Authors of aids to understand statistical
concepts." It's the animation possibilities that look interesting for
explaining things like the mean or regression lines if readers can move data
points around. I don't have Mathematica, or even Acrobat, but I recently
got a new PC with Windows 7 and Word 2007, so I can now save pdf files which
which retain their layout, display more quickly on my website and have
functioning hyperlinks. Muir Houston pointed me towards MWsnap freeware
which I've been using to capture bits of screen (eg icons on SPSS
screenshots) but now there's "snip" in Word which apparently does the same
thing.

Excel contains both data and a presentation layer. Why is this all that
different? Isn't Mathematica required on the client machine to modify the
content? Note that the output from SPSS does, to some degree. contain data
that you can tinker with provided that you have a reader that understands
the content.

After .pdf comes .cdf. This looks very interesting.
