paulnorthrop/smovie: Some Movies to Illustrate Concepts in Statistics

Provides movies to help students to understand statistical concepts. The 'rpanel' package is used to create interactive plots that move to illustrate key statistical ideas and methods. There are movies to: visualise probability distributions (including user-supplied ones); illustrate sampling distributions of the sample mean (central limit theorem), the median, the sample maximum (extremal types theorem) and (the Fisher transformation of the) Pearson product moment correlation coefficient; examine the influence of an individual observation in simple linear regression; illustrate key concepts in statistical hypothesis testing. Also provided are dpqr functions for the distribution of the Fisher transformation of the correlation coefficient under sampling from a bivariate normal distribution.
