Coupon Collector Experiment
This resource consists of a Java applet and expository text. The applet is a simulation of the coupon collector problem, which consists of sampling from the first m positive integers, with replacement, until k distinct values are obtained. The parameters m and k can be varied. The random variable of interest is the size of the sample.

Coin Die Experiment
This resource consists of a Java applet and expository text. The applet is a simulation of the experiment that consists of tossing a coin and then rolling either a red die or a green die, depending on the outcome of the coin toss. The probability of heads and the distributions of the two dice can be specified. The applet illustrates a two-stage experiment.

Birthday Experiment
This resource consists of a Java applet and expository text. The applet is a simulation of the birthday experiment: a sample of size n is chose at random and with replacement from the first m positive integers. The random variable of interest is the number of distinct sample values. The event of interest is that all sample values are distinct.

Bertrand's Experiment
This resource consists of a Java applet and expository text. The applet is a simulation of Bertrand's experiment: a random chord on a circle The event of interest is whether the length of the chord is larger than the length of the inscribed equilateral triangle. Three models for generating the random chord can be used.

Accuracy of Series Approximations
In physics and mathematics, series expansions to approximate functions are often used because using the exact solution is either impossible or involves unnecessary complicated calculations. This Demonstration shows accuracy for a series of expansions and how adding terms increases that accuracy moving away from the origin.
