Interactive Visualizations to Explore Data using JMP Statistical Software

Date & Time: Coming Soon

Presented by: Kevin Potcner

Exploring data – especially complex multi-dimensional data – can be daunting for students new to the statistical sciences. A focus on formal statistical techniques and explicit use of formulas often result in exposing students only to basic analysis problems (e.g., 1-sample inference, 2-sample comparisons, modeling with few explanatory variables, etc.).

The data that these students will be presented with once they enter the workforce will not be this simple. These datasets will contain a large number of variables and not fit the simple inferential techniques that is part of the standard statistics curriculum.

Using the JMP Statistical Software, the presenter will illustrate a variety of ideas on how to incorporate dynamic interactive visualization tools into your curriculum to help excite students learning the statistical sciences and better equip them to handle the types of data and problems they will face in their future jobs.
