Probability -- Simulation

View Resource **Interactive Games

This applet allows users to play several probability games like Monty Hall, Gambler's Ruin, Galton's Board, etc. Select a game from the drop down menu and click "About" to read its background. Users can manipulate the parameters for each game. Graphs of the theoretical and empirical distributions are shown.
View Resource **Monty Hall Paradox

This java applet provides students with opportunities to visualize the Monty Hall paradox (i.e., the famous ?three-door? problem often discussed in introductory statistics courses). By going through the simulation and reading the accompanying materials, students can better understand concepts related to probability, and they can also see the need to gather data in order to test theories about...
View Resource **Signal Detection Theory Tutorial

Every day we have to make decisions about uncertain events like, 'Is that my phone ringing or one on the television?', or, 'Is the person talking to me telling the truth?' In this tutorial, you will learn about the Signal Detection Theory (SDT) model of how people make decisions about uncertain events. This tutorial explains the theory behind signal detection, covers several SDT measures of...
View Resource **Statistics Online Computational Resource (SOCR) Modeler

The SOCR Modeler allows the user to compare data with typical statistical models such as the beta distribution, exponential, gamma, Poisson, etc. The user can adjust the bin ranges for the data comparison.
View Resource **The Central Limit Theorem – How to Tame Wild Populations

Using a parameter it?s possible to represent a property of an entire population with a single number instead of millions of individual data points. There are a number of possible parameters to choose from such as the median, mode, or interquartile range. Each is calculated in a different manner and illuminates the data from a different point of view. The mean is one of the most useful and w...
