Explaining statistics through Dance

This is brilliant. I like graphs to explain these concepts. But I recognize (and often teach people) for whom neither equations nor graphs work.

the statistical concept of correlation through dance.

the statistical concept of frequency distributions through dance.

the statistical concept of sampling & standard error through dance.

the statistical concept of variance through dance.

  2. Howdy! This is kind of off topic but I need some help
    from an established blog. Is it tough to set up your own blog?

    I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty fast.
    I’m thinking about making my own but I’m not sure
    where to begin. Do you have any points or suggestions? With thanks
