I have used this applet for many semesters but recently have had to give it up because of Java issues. WISE is working on revision of their applets to improve the ease of use but this one isn't there yet. I keep checking though because it is a great visualization of the changes in the sampling distribution resulting from changes in sample size. The worksheet provided with the applet makes it possible to assign as homework with computer-literate students.

Very nicely done. The layout is clean, and it is easy to use. This is a self-contained lesson, and should students should be prepared to use this module if they are prepared to study the sampling distribution of the mean.

Technical Remarks:

Requires Java.
