 ** Sampling Distributions This applet simulates and plots the sampling distribution of various statistics (i.e. mean, standard deviation, variance). The applet allows the user to specify the population distribution, sample... http://onlinestatbook.com/stat_sim/sampling_dist/index.html
 **Inference for Means Activity This activity enables students to learn about confidence intervals and hypothesis tests for a population mean. It focuses on the t-distribution, the assumptions for using it, and graphical displays. ... http://www.causeweb.org/repository/ACT/Means_Activity.doc
 **Reese's Pieces Samples This applet simulates drawing samples of Reese?s Pieces from a candy machine. Users set the sample size, number of samples, and theta, the population proportion of orange pieces. The applet keeps... http://www.rossmanchance.com/applets/Reeses/ReesesPieces.htm...
 A Useful Display of a Normal Population This article describes how to make a physical model of the normal distribution and use it to illustrate the concepts of sampling distributions, confidence intervals, and hypothesis testing. http://www.rsscse-edu.org.uk/tsj/bts/jernigan/text.html
 Bootstrapping This lesson describes bootstrapping in the context of a statistics class for psychology students. http://www.uvm.edu/~dhowell/gradstat/psych341/lectures/Boots...
 Distribution of the Sample Sum, Sample Mean, Sample Variance, and Sample Chi-Squared This applet illustrates this concept of the sampling distribution of a statistic by simulating the sampling distribution of the sample sum, mean, variance, and chi-square. Users can choose from a... http://stat-www.berkeley.edu/~stark/Java/Html/SampleDist.htm
 Empirical Cumulative Distribution This applet allows the user to enter data, then returns the values of empirical cumulative distribution function by sorting the data and reporting the height of the curve at each point. It does not... http://home.ubalt.edu/ntsbarsh/Business-stat/otherapplets/EC...
 Empirical Distributions This applet plots the survival function (1-F(t)) of the exponential distribution against the empirical survival function. The empirical survival function is one minus the empirical distribution... http://www.ms.uky.edu/~mai/java/stat/EmpDis.html
 High Exposure This probability activity discusses the differences among various kinds of studies and which types of inferences can legitimately be drawn from each, as well as how sample statistics reflect the... http://teacherlink.org/content/math/interactive/probability/...
 HyperStat Online: Ch. 6, Sampling Distributions This chapter of the HyperStat Online Textbook discusses in detail sampling distributions of various statistics (mean, median, proportions, correlation, etc.), differences between such statistics, the... http://davidmlane.com/hyperstat/sampling_dist.html
