Comments There are other resources/tools available that work similarly to this, but have much more extensive functionality. For example, Tinkerplots allows students to build their own simulations to model a variety of different probabilistic situations. I question the usefulness of an applet like this because it constrains the students to a very specific simulation environment. It might be helpful to include a statement of the purpose of Probability Histogram and what audience it is geared towards. I feel that the visual aspects would quickly turn people away before they even started. I think the most important change would be to link the two tabs. Maybe they could even be shown on the same page without having tabs if you really are interested in the product.
