Summary: Analogies are useful and potent tools for introducing new topics in statistics to students. {\it M. A. Martin} [J. Stat. Educ. 11, No. 2, 1--25 (2003; ME 2011d.00757); ``What lies beneath: inventing new wheels from old", in: OZCOTS 2008, Proceedings of the 6th Australian Conference on Teaching Statistics. Statistical Society of Australia Incorporated (SSAI). 35--52 (2008)] considered the case for teaching with analogies in introductory statistics courses, and also gave many examples of particular analogies that had been successfully used to make difficult statistical concepts more accessible to students. In this chapter, we explore more deeply analogies for statistical concepts from more advanced topics such as regression modeling and high-dimensional data.
