Description: An open-ended learning environment for Windows for representing data in multiple ways, engaging students in designing, simulating, and analyzing results of probability experiments. The software environment can be used for activities from upper elementary grades through high school. Data are represented in Probability Explorer with randomly generated icons that can be sorted, stacked (in a pictograph) or lined up in the sequence in which they occurred. A Pie Graph (relative frequency), Bar Graph (frequency), and Data Table (counts, fractions, decimals, and percents) are also available to display results in static form as well as changing dynamically during a simulation. A demo version available for download and the full version may be purchased.
