The subject of Statistics can become a little complicated, but if you are like me visualizing what is going on can help to make something complicated easier to understand. In this post I will be using scatter plots to help gain a better understanding of certain subjects in statistics.
A scatter plot is just a collection of points in a plain. It can be just a collection of 2d points, making it a common choice to visualize data that can be expressed with two dimensions. However there can also have a 3d scatter plot, as well as use colors, and shapes to add additional dimensions if needed.
Sorry for the short post for now. I am postponing development of my posts on statistics for now, but will defiantly get back to this one at some point. Scatter plots strike me as a very nice graphical way of making sense of data, and concepts in statistics such as standard deviation.
