Teacher Review (Based on classroom experience) Reviewer: Craig, Aug 9 2005 11:26:23:443PM 
Classroom use in Courses and Topics: Probability & Statistics: Samples and Experiments, Probability 
Duration of classroom use: One Class 
What did students learn? Students used the applets to see how simulation could be used to
estimate probabilities

What did students do with the resource? I had students use this applet along with a collection of other tools in a probability exploration activity

How hard was it for students to use? Very Easy 
Other classroom comments: This applets is slower than some others, but more visual; students
especially liked the graphics with the birthday problem applet (but I
found it frustratingly slow).

Appropriate for: introduction to a concept 
What math does one need to know to use the resource? None, really, but knowing about the difference between probability
and relative frequency would make for a more meaningful experience.

What hardware expertise does one need to learn to use the resource? None 
What extra things must be done to make it work? Nothing 
How hard was it for you to learn? Easy 
Explanation: Though no directions were provided, clicking around quickly provided
adequate information for using the applets successfully.

Ability to meet my goals: Neutral

Tool: The Birthday Problem Review
