Abstract: 

"Simulations in Mathematics-Probability and Computing", (SIM-PAC), is a three year project funded by the United States' National Science Foundation's Materials Research and Development program. This paper describes the background and rationale for the project, its goals and objectives and the instructional strategy utilized by SIM-PAC. An example of a typical learning activity and the capabilities of the software are illustrated.
