This is a QR code. A QR Code is a 2-dimensional barcode, which has encoded in it a URL (web address), text, or other information. It can be read by a QR code scanner, including QR scanner smartphone apps. Once you have an app installed on your smartphone, open the app and hold your phone’s camera over a QR code to read it. Most QR codes you’ll come across have a URL encoded, so chances are when you read the QR code it will take you to a web page.

Description:
This applet allows users to simulate sampling from a bag of Reese's Pieces.  The computer keeps track of each sample and estimates the proportion of orange pieces.  Users can set the sample size, number of samples, and population proportion of orange pieces.  A dotplot of the sample proprotions is shown.

I thought that the applet gave a good visualization of the sampling process. It was also helpful to see how changing the sample size and theta affected the appropriateness of the normal approximation.

Technical Remarks:

The notation for the population proportion, theta, seems inconsistent with most textbooks.
