This Demonstration provides a visualization of the relationship between the mean, , and the median, , in positively (right) and negatively (left) skewed distributions, as well as the quartiles and . The positively skewed distributions used are the family of gamma distributions with unit variance and shape parameter . Beta distributions with parameters are used for the negatively skewed distributions.
