> You might want to consider Tangible Math: Probability Constructor
>designed by LOGAL Software Inc. and carried by SUNBURST. It was developed
>for grades 8-college. The description reads, "Using a variety of modeling
>tolls such as coins, marbles, color wheels, dice, random numbers, areas,
>and animation, students build models to visualize the concepts, formulas,
>and relationships related to probability. Experiment results can be
>analyzed using build-in tools such as bar charts, spreadsheets, Venn
>diagrams, trees, or graphs.
> The student activities that accompany Probability Constructor introduce
>the concepts of frequency and relative frequency, then build a
>comprehensive understanding of probability. Students apply these concepts
>to a variety of situations, including intersections of events, unions of
>events, complementary events, and mutually exclusive events. This prepared
>curriculum is just a start, however. Probability Constructo is an
>open-ended learning tool teachers and students will use often to model
>probability situations."
