This applet simulates rolling dice and displays the outcomes in a histogram. Students can choose to roll 1, 2, 6, or 9 dice either 1, 10, 20, or 100 times. The outcome studied is the sum of the dice and a red line is drawn on the histogram to show expected number of occurences of each outcome.

Comments This applet has potential to be an effective online learning tool for students who do not have access to hands-on demonstrations in the classroom. An instructor would definitely need to provide some guiding questions to explain to the student what they should be learning from the applet.
