The

I have a bunch of fairly naive questionsÂ aboutÂ the use of Geogebra for statistics. Probably the main questions are:

- Who is using it to teach statistics, and at what levels (elementary school, middle school, high school, college, graduate school ?)
- Who is using it for dataÂ analysis, and in what contexts?
- What size data sets can Geogebra handle?

If anyone has even partial answers to these questions I’d be glad to hear about them. I’d also likeÂ toÂ hear any and all stories of use statistical use of Geogebra, and I’m happy to share those stories here.

I’m aware that Geogebra has a bunch of statistics commands and functions: I’mÂ interestedÂ in how people are using Geogebra for statistics.

Thanks forÂ yourÂ time,

Gary Davis

I just found a cache of neat GeoGebra statistics sketches from user timstudiesmath http://www.geogebratube.org/user/profile/id/708 He uses them in his AP Statistics.

I’ve used the stats mostly for data fitting and modeling within algebra. The regression tools are a bit better than what you can do with a calculator, and the spreadsheet is enabled for copying and pasting. The dynamic interaction between spreadsheet data and visualization is the best thing I’ve seen outside of Fathom.
