More: lessons, discussions, ratings, reviews,... Rolling a Pair of Dice Simulating Experiments (Probability & Statistics) Computer Lesson Plan [0] In this lesson, students use Logo for a computer simulation for rolling dice to speed up the work such that they can "roll dice" more times, keeping track of the outcomes. It is not intended to be an ... More: lessons, discussions, ratings, reviews,... Biased Rectangles? Simulating Experiments (Probability & Statistics) Fathom Lesson Plan [1] Students explore one example of how bias affects the mean. This simulation increases students' understanding of the significance of sample size on the calculation of the mean. Exploring t... More: lessons, discussions, ratings, reviews,... Galton's Quincunx Simulating Experiments (Probability & Statistics) Flash Tool [0] Francis Galton was a pioneer in the study of heredity and statistics. His quincunx (a pattern of five dots, as on dice) is modeled in this Flash activity. More: lessons, discussions, ratings, reviews,... Plinko Probability Simulating Experiments (Probability & Statistics) Flash Tool [1] Play Plinko and develop your knowledge of statistics. As the Plinko ball falls, it ricochets down a triangular grid of pegs. See the balls random walk through the lattice. Watch the histogram of final... More: lessons, discussions, ratings, reviews,... Spinning Spinners Simulating Experiments (Probability & Statistics) Flash Tool [0] Select from seven different sets of spinners and set the desired number of spins. The two spinners selected can be spun up to 1 million times. The scores are counted and a bar graph displays the data. More: lessons, discussions, ratings, reviews,... A Better Fire! Simulating Experiments (Probability & Statistics) Java Applet Tool [3] See the chaos theory played out in forest fire simulations. More: lessons, discussions, ratings, reviews,... Ball and Urn Experiment Simulating Experiments (Probability & Statistics) Java Applet Tool [1] Simulates drawing balls from an urn, with or without replacement. Specify number of balls, number of red balls, and number drawn. Requires a MathPlayer plugin (free). More: lessons, discussions, ratings, reviews,... Ball-Mixing Activity: 4 Balls ... Simulating Experiments (Probability & Statistics) Java Applet Tool [1] We have 4 balls--2 reds and 2 greens. We drop them randomly into 2 boxes. Are the colors mixed or separate? Use this applet to experiment. More: lessons, discussions, ratings, reviews,... Banach Match Box Problem Simulating Experiments (Probability & Statistics) Java Applet Tool [0] Two boxes have the same number of matches. A coin is tossed to determine which box a match is taken from. Coin toss repeats until the chosen box is empty; the number of matches remaining in the othe... More: lessons, discussions, ratings, reviews,... Bertrand's Experiment Simulating Experiments (Probability & Statistics) Java Applet Tool [0] Demonstration of the probability that a chord of a circle falls within an inscribed equilateral triangle. Three ways of "randomizing" the chord result in different probability distributions. Require... More: lessons, discussions, ratings, reviews,... Binomial Coin Experiment Simulating Experiments (Probability & Statistics) Java Applet Tool [0] Simulates tosses of from 1 to 60 coins with user-chosen probability of heads; compiles both number and proportion of heads, with theoretical and empirical distributions.

Birthday Experiment Simulating Experiments (Probability & Statistics) Java Applet Tool [0] This simulator extends the classic birthday problem: user sets the number of days in a year and the number of people in a room. Birthdays are assigned at random, and the user may examine either disti... More: lessons, discussions, ratings, reviews,... Box Model Simulating Experiments (Probability & Statistics) Java Applet Tool [1] Using this virtual manipulative you may: add data points to the draw box; simulate random draws from a box; compare actual draws with probability More: lessons, discussions, ratings, reviews,... Buffon's Coin Experiment Simulating Experiments (Probability & Statistics) Java Applet Tool [0] Simulates the probability of a coin, dropped at random on a checkerboard, landing fully within a square. Radius of coin can be adjusted. Requires a (free) MathPlayer plugin. More: lessons, discussions, ratings, reviews,... Buffon's Needle Experiment Simulating Experiments (Probability & Statistics) Java Applet Tool [0] A fairly sophisticated version of the needle dropped on a wooden floor problem. Detailed analysis of theoretical probability, lots of control on parameters. Requires a MathPlayer plugin (free downlo... More: lessons, discussions, ratings, reviews,... Central Limit Theorem Activity Simulating Experiments (Probability & Statistics) Java Applet Activity [1] This activity represents a very general demonstration of the effects of the Central Limit Theorem (CLT).
