Statistical literacy is essential to our data-driven society. Analytics has been and continues to be a game changer in many business fields, among other Human Resources. Yet, for all the increased importance and demand for statistical competence, the pedagogical approaches in statistics have barely changed.

Seeing Theory is a project designed and created by Daniel Kunin with support from Brown University’s Royce Fellowship Program. The goal of the project is to make statistics more accessible to a wider range of students through interactive visualizations.

Using JavaScript, the researchers have made statistics both intuitive and beautiful at the same time.
