Gives a good impression of some basic concepts. You can "draw" your own distribution or use a pre-set. Some of the pre-set distributions seem oversimplified due to the small range of values that can be used.

Technical Remarks:

All of the useage options aren't apparent without reading all of the instructions - for example, you must look under "File" for the option to "Practice Guessing."

Excellent display of the relationships between centrality and dispersion.
