Data sets and utilities from Project MOSAIC ( used to teach mathematics, statistics, computation and modeling. Funded by the NSF, Project MOSAIC is a community of educators working to tie together aspects of quantitative work that students in science, technology, engineering and mathematics will need in their professional lives, but which are usually taught in isolation, if at all.


This package contains a variety of functions for animations in statistics, covering areas such as probability theory, mathematical statistics, multivariate statistics, nonparametric statistics, sampling survey, linear models, time series, computational statistics, data mining and machine learning. These functions might be helpful in teaching statistics and data analysis. Also provided in this package are several approaches to save animations to various formats, e.g. Flash, GIF, HTML pages, PDF and videos (saveSWF(), saveGIF(), saveHTML(), saveLatex(), and saveVideo() respectively). PDF animations can be inserted into Sweave/knitr easily.
