Great organization and information. I found the exercises to be a bit too wordy and possibly overwhelming for students.

grade math class. After reviewing several of the available problems, I selected
the Monty Hall problem to be the focus of my lesson. While I have not actually
used the lesson yet with my students, I plan to in the next few weeks. The
quality of the content is very high. I appreciated the variety of classic
probability problems that were presented in such a manner that they would be
accessible to high school students but also engaging for college students or
adults as well. The written descriptions of the problems are informative and
thorough and the simulations are engaging. I am extremely optimistic that this
resource will be able to be used effectively to help my students understand the
use of simulations in solving probability problems.
some computers may have trouble running the simulations, I had no technical
difficulties whatsoever in running the simulations on my home computer and I
also no problems running them on the computers at work. One change that might
make the Monty Hall simulation easier to understand would be to change the
program for the applet to open one door at a time more like it was described on
the show Let's Make a Deal.

information on this sit. There were great problems that you can try and solve,
and there were great examples as well. I spent about 15 minutes on this sit
and I was able to absorb a ton of infromation. This was a great sit, and it was

odds that an event or action will occur. I have always been fascinated about how
mathematicians as well as many other people are able to break down statistics
and determine the probability of an event. A main theme that this particular
site demonstrated quite well was the portion that determined random selection.
There was a very easy to understand example of this idea on the website. Through
playing around with the example I was able to understand a lot more about the
process of random selection. Through this example as well as a few others listed
on the page I was able to determine that the process of random selection
includes no selection at all. I kept going back and forth from this site because
I couldn?t stop playing with the random selection example shown on the site.
This site was particularly easy to navigate around in but it did leave a few
areas about the topic uncovered. But because of the simplicity of the web site
and the great examples, this site is definitely a valuable learning tool.
application to biology. The material was equally distrubuted to a lot of puzzle
solving. Which made a little exciting to solve.

probability as well as intoduces 21 probaility problems; each problem is laid
out in detail and allow you to work out the problem, once you have reached the
solution to the problem it allows you to check your answer. The part I like the
most is the site shows you the steps in solving the problem. I believe this is
a great learning tool. I find many sites just give you the answer but they
don't show you the steps in solving the problem. This site clearly shows you
the steps which is helpful. I spent about 1 hour in this site visiting differnt
probability problems, like the probability of The Male and Female Bears, The
Monty Hall Dilemma and The Balls of Two Colors. I believe this is a good site
for the students. The site is laid out in a simple format which makes it easy
to undertand as well as use. It is not diffcult to meneuver your way through the
site. It is user friendly.
