Some interactive Python tutorials on basic stats, possibly useful for teaching

    Dear Python folks,

    Those of you whose duties include teaching basic stats
    might be interested in these interactive tutorial files,
    designed to illustrate basic concepts.
    Running the code opens up an interactive figure window.
    When you click on a figure to add new points,
    the statistical tests shown in the figure change accordingly.

    http://www.dartmouth.edu/~raj/intro-stats.html

    The code has lots of comments in it, which attempt to explain the
    concepts as explicitly as possible. No prior knowledge of Python or
    statistics is assumed. These programs require the SciPy and
    Matplotlib modules.

    The tutorials are:
    - interactive_mean_std_normal_distribution.py
    - interactive_one_sample_t_test.py
    - interactive_two_sample_t_test.py
    - interactive_correlation_plot.py

    The same webpage also contains Matlab versions of the scripts.
    Please feel more than free to use any of the code for teaching,
    if you find it useful.

    Yours,
