Activity  (...)
Activity: Students run a simulation of how a fire will spread through a stand of trees, learning about probability and chaos. Parameters: Forest density, wind direction, size of forest.

Activity: Run a simulation of how a fire spreads through a stand of trees, learning about probability and chaos. Track the results of multiple burns and use the data to draw conclusions.

Activity: Choose one of N doors to experimentally determine the odds of winning the grand prize behind one of the doors, as in the TV program "Let's Make a Deal." Parameters: Number of doors, number of trials, staying or switching between the two remaining doors.

Activity: Enter data to create a bar graph, then change many settings for the graph's appearance.

Activity: Students can create box plots for either built-in or user-specified data as well as experiment with outliers. User may choose to use or not use the median for calculation of interquartile range.

Activity: Experiment with a simulation to get an approximation of Pi by dropping a needle on a lined sheet of paper.

Activity: Enter your own data categories and the value of each category to create a pie chart. There are also built in data sets which can be viewed.

Activity: Simulation of a coin toss allowing the user to input the number of flips. Toss results can be viewed as a list of individual outcomes, ratios, or table.

Activity: Compare two sets of objects, using estimation to determine which is greater. Estimate a number of objects, the length of a line, or the area of a shape. Parameter: error tolerance. Comparison Estimator is one of the Interactivate assessment explorers.

Activity: Compare theoretical and experimental probabilities, using dice, cards, spinners, or coin tosses. Three different probabilities can be compared at once. Parameters: Type of probabilities, number of trials.

Activity: Enter a set of data points, then derive a function to fit those points. Manipulate the function on a coordinate plane using slider bars. Learn how each constant and coefficient affects the resulting graph.

Activity: Experiment with the outcome distribution for a roll of two dice by simulating a dice throwing game. Parameters: Which player wins with which total rolled.

Activity: Run a simulation of how a fire will spread through a stand of trees, learning about probability and chaos. Parameters: Probability that a tree will set fire to each of its eight neighbors.

Activity: Practice estimation skills by determining the number of objects, the length of a line, or the area of a shape. Parameters: error tolerance of estimate. Estimator is one of the Interactivate assessment explorers.

Activity: Experiment with probability using a fixed size section spinner, a variable section spinner, two regular 6-sided dice or customized dice.

Activity: Run a simulation of how a fire will spread through a stand of trees, learning about probability and chaos. Parameters: Probability that a tree catches fire if its neighbor is on fire.

Activity: This applet allows the user to experiment with randomly generated data sets at various sample sizes and standard deviations. Then, users can compare the distribution of the experimental data to the expected distribution.

Activity: View histograms for built-in or user-specified data. Experiment with how the size of the class intervals influences the appearance of the histogram. Parameters: Data sets, class sizes.

Activity: Enter data and view the mean, median, variance, and standard deviation of the data set. Parameters: Number of observations, range for observations, which statistics to view, identifiers for the data.

Activity: Practice estimation skills by determining whether the number of objects, the length of a line, or the area of a shape is more or less than the number given. Parameters: error tolerance of estimate. More or Less Estimator is one of the Interactivate assessment explorers.

Activity: Enter data to create a double bar graph, then manipulate the graph's maximum and minimum values.

Activity: Students compare multiple independent variables as predictors of one dependent variable. Students explore correlation and lines of best-fit.
