Part II of this activity contains more examples and diverse experiments. More: lessons, discussions, ratings, reviews,... Poisson Processes Discrete Random Variables (Probability & Statistics) Java Applet Activity [0] Guides students through exploration of properties of the Poisson and Exponential distributions (applets embedded). More: lessons, discussions, ratings, reviews,... How Random! Discrete Random Variables (Probability & Statistics) TI-Nspire Activity [0] In this activity, students use simulations and graphs to explore the common-sense notion that repeatedly ﬂipping a coin results in “heads up” about half of the time. First, students simulate an... More: lessons, discussions, ratings, reviews,... Ball and Urn Experiment Discrete Random Variables (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,... Birthday Experiment Discrete Random Variables (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,... Chocolate Chip Simulation Discrete Random Variables (Probability & Statistics) Java Applet Tool [1] Simulate random placement of any number of chocolate chips on 100 cookies. More: lessons, discussions, ratings, reviews,... Coin Toss Discrete Random Variables (Probability & Statistics) Java Applet Tool [3] Explore probability concepts by simulating repeated coin tosses. More: lessons, discussions, ratings, reviews,... Coupon Collector Experiment Discrete Random Variables (Probability & Statistics) Java Applet Tool [0] The experiment consists of sampling with replacement from the population of m objects until k distinct values are obtained. The number of draws is recorded. This simulation is more general (but less... More: lessons, discussions, ratings, reviews,... Matching Experiment Discrete Random Variables (Probability & Statistics) Java Applet Tool [0] In a permutation of n objects, a match occurs if the k'th object is numbered k. This simulation counts the number of matches in a random permutation. Requires a MathPlayer plugin (free). More: lessons, discussions, ratings, reviews,... Negative Binomial Experiment Discrete Random Variables (Probability & Statistics) Java Applet Tool [0] Simulates counting number of Bernoulli trials until "k" successes occur (if k = 1, result is Geometric distribution). Requires a MathPlayer plugin (free). More: lessons, discussions, ratings, reviews,... Poisson Experiment Discrete Random Variables (Probability & Statistics) Java Applet Tool [4] This applet allows the user to fix a rate and time interval for a Poisson process (counting the number of occurrences in a fixed time interval). Experimental and theoretical results, including expecte... More: lessons, discussions, ratings, reviews,... Poker Experiment Discrete Random Variables (Probability & Statistics) Java Applet Tool [0] Java applet that simulates poker hands (runs from Mozilla Firefox). Reports experimental and theoretical probabilities on nine different types of hands (5-card). More: lessons, discussions, ratings, reviews,... Problem of Points Experiment Discrete Random Variables (Probability & Statistics) Java Applet Tool [0] Demonstrates the probability distribution (theoretical and empirical) for tossing a coin until you get n heads or m tails, whichever comes first. User sets n, m, and probability of heads. Requires M... More: lessons, discussions, ratings, reviews,... Pollution and Peppered Moths Discrete Random Variables (Probability & Statistics) JavaScript Tool [0] This model explores the effects of pollution and bird predation on the protective coloration of peppered moths (through directed selection). A series of questions guides students' explorations. More: lessons, discussions, ratings, reviews,... Page 1
