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).

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...

Law of Large Numbers Activity

Discrete Random Variables (Probability & Statistics) 
Java Applet 
Activity 

[0]

This is part I of a heterogeneous activity that demonstrates the theory and applications of the Law of Large Numbers (LLN). Part II of this activity contains more examples and diverse experiments.

How Random!

Discrete Random Variables (Probability & Statistics) 
TINspire 
Activity 

[0]

In this activity, students use simulations and graphs to explore the commonsense notion that repeatedly ﬂipping a coin results in “heads up” about half of the time. First, students simulate an...

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).

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...

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).

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...

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...
