Interactive Area Explorer - Fix the perimeter, and then find the area
Interactive Perimeter Explorer - Fix the area, and then find the perimeter.
Interactive Perimeter and Area Explorer - Find both the perimeter and the area of the shape.
This is a fun little puzzle that is a bit trickier than it first appears.
First choose the front and rear wheels of the bike, and then start pedalling. How far do you go?
Each box of Cheerios (a breakfast cereal) contains a prize. There are 6 different prizes. On average, how many boxes of Cheerios do you need to buy to get all 6 different prizes? This web page is a colourful simulation of the problem.
A Java applet in which students can change the number of points and the correlation coefficients, as well as add points. They can also show the regression line and the residual plot. Three thumbs up!
These are two excellent interactive sites for exploring correlation.
Six points are shown along with a line that passes near them. The applet shows the square of the residual of each point as well as the sum of the squares. Your task is to change the gradient and y-intercept of the line to minimise the sum of the squares. Three thumbs up!
(1) Confidence intervals on the mean are generated for simulated experiments. The confidence level and sample size can be altered. Note that the website currently doesn't work with Netscape/Mozilla 4.0 or higher.
(2) This applet simulates finding confidence intervals for the mean of a normal random variable. A sample of size 20 is generated from a standard normal random variable.
(3) This applet is similar to (2) above, except it repeats the process a chosen number of times
And here are some notes/instructions for this applet
This applet estimates and plots the sampling distribution of various statistics. You specify the population distribution, sample size, and statistic. An animated sample from the population is shown and the statistic is plotted. This can be repeated to estimate the sampling distribution.
Add some points to the scatterplot. The applet will calculate the correlation coefficient and the sum of squares. You can also choose to show the least-squares regression line and the x-mean and y-mean lines. Very instructive!
