**76**(4&5), 353-359 (2008).This article discusses several ways of illustrating fundamental concepts in statistical and thermal physics by considering various models and algorithms. We emphasize the importance…

This applet demonstrates a histogram. The user can edit the data or choose different data samples. The user is able to guess the mean/median, deviation, and IQR. It can then display…

This applet samples words. The user can control the sample size and the number of samples. It displays the number, the word, the number of letters, whether it is long and whether or…

This applet draws a sample of senators (from Senators in 2005). The user can control the sample size and the number of samples. The applet displays the senator's name, number of…

This applet simulates the binomial distribution. The user can control the population proportion, the sample size and the number of samples. Once the samples are drawn, the number of…
