Monty Hall Game
This resource consists of a Java applet and expository text. The applet consists of the Monty Hall game: a car is behind one door and goats are behind the other two doors. The player makes an initial choice and the host opens a different door. The player is then given the option of switching to the remaining door. The stochastic behavior of the host can be specified.

Matching Experiment
This resource consists of a Java applet and expository text. The applet is a simulation of the matching experiment, which consists of a random permutation of the first n positive integers. The random variable of interest is the number of matches (the number of integers in the random permutation that are in their correct positions). The applet illustrates the distribution of the number of matches and the convergence to the Poisson distribution.
