This online, interactive lesson on distributions provides examples, exercises, and applets which explore the basic types of probability distributions and the ways distributions can be defined using density functions, distribution functions, and quantile functions.
This Java based applet gives students an opportunity to work through confidence interval problems for the mean. The material provides written word problems in which an individual must be able to correctly identify the given parts for a confidence interval calculation, and then be able to use this information to find the confidence interval. It gives step by step prompts to encourage students to choose the correct numbers and "cast of characters".
This site provides a collection of applets and their descriptions. Some of the titles include the Monte Carlo Estimation of Pi, Can You Beat Randomness?, One-Dimensional Random Walk, Two-Dimensional Random Walk, The Anthill and Molecular Motion, Diffusion Limited Aggregation, The Self-Avoiding Walk, Fractal Coastlines, and Forest Fires and Percolation.
This is the description and instructions for the Monte Carlo Estimation of Pi applet. It is a simulation of throwing darts at a figure of a circle inscribed in a square. It shows the relationship between the geometry of the figure and the statistical outcome of throwing the darts.
