VESTAC: Java Applets for Visualization of Statistical Concepts

This collection of over 30 Java applets is quite impressive, both in content and in presentation. Operated at a university in Belgium, Visualization of and Experimentation with Statistical Concepts (VESTAC) is the title of the project that developed these educational tools. The applets are very intricate, with many functions and graphical capabilities; they are therefore quite large and can take...

Probability Tutorials [Last reviewed in the Scout Report on November 24, 1999]

When the Scout Report last visited the Probability Tutorials in 1999, there were just twelve tutorials on this site. Since that time, the tutorials offered here have grown both in number (from twelve to twenty) and in their overall scope and breadth. The site was created and is still maintained by Noel Vaillant, who received his PhD from Imperial College, London. Currently, the site contains...
