Large collection of platform independent, interactive, java applets and activities for K-12 mathematics and teacher education.The Binomial, Normal, and Poisson Distributions Compared
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=78577
This applet graphs the Poisson and normal approximations to a specified binomial distribution. The user may select the values of n and p to be used.Making Sense of Understanding: The Three Doors of Serendip
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=365521
A discussion of what is meant by "understanding" using a simulation of the "Monty Hall" or "Three Doors" problem to illustrate points and motivate further questions.Monty Hall Paradox
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=86857
This site contains an interactive applet illustarting Monty Hall problem as well as a page describing the history of Monty Hall paradox and a comprehensive proof of its non-intuitive solution.Normal Probability Tool
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=91030
A simple to use JAVA applet that finds Normal probabilities. Simply set mu, sigma, upper and lower scores. Normal Tool shows the area under the curve along with the probability. Detailed instructions are included. Optional web lecture on the Normal Probability Distribution is also included. Two kinds of Assignments are provided under the assignment link--one assignment is computer graded and uses a JAVA applet, the other assignment is a typical story problem homework with answer key in pdf format.Histogram Explorer
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=74398
Histogram Explorer is a tool for understanding histograms and their statisticsSimulating Binomial Distribution
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=221212
This applet simulates drawing samples from a binomial distribution. Users set the population proportion, sample size, and number of samples. The applet shows the corresponding histogram each time a sample is drawn. Users can also count the number of successes above or below a certain value or view the theoretical values for the distribution.Binomial Distribution
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=88102
Marbles bounce down an array of pegs. The resulting binomial distribution is displayed graphically in real time. A control panel allows the size of the array, and the probability of a bounce to the right to be varied.A short introduction has been added in the form of a series of multiple choice questions with instructions. Instructors wishing to author their own set of instructions and questions should contact the contributor.Forest Fires and Percolation
