• ### Software: Shiny Apps

This is a web application framework for R, in which you can write and publish web apps without knowing HTML, Java, etc. You create two .R files: one that controls the user interface, and one that controls what the app does. The site contains examples of Shiny apps, a tutorial on how to get started, and information on how to have your apps hosted, if you don't have a server.

• ### Getting Started with R

These handouts/links give a foundational understanding of how to set up and use R

• ### Probability Models JAVA Applet Sourcecode

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.

• ### Easy Charts: Java Chart Components

EasyCharts is a complete library of java chart components, chart applets, and chart servlets that enable programmers to add charts and graphs in java applications, web applications, and web pages with just a few lines of code. The java chart library includes bar charts, line charts, and pie charts and is highly configurable. The java chart library supports charts with multiple data series, overlay charts, drilldown charts, and interactive features such as zooming and scrolling of chart data.

• ### Probability and Statistics Object Library

This library contains a plethera of downloadable applets and the components of the applets for use by teachers and students of probability and statistics. These objects (both executable files and source code) can be downloaded, modified if desired, and reused.

• ### RStudio Cheat Sheets

These cheat sheets make it easy to learn about and use some of the favorite packages of RStudio.

• ### Counting Eights: A First Activity in the Study and Interpretation of Probability (Star Library)

Students explore the definition and interpretations of the probability of an event by investigating the long run proportion of times a sum of 8 is obtained when two balanced dice are rolled repeatedly. Making use of hand calculations, computer simulations, and descriptive techniques, students encounter the laws of large numbers in a familiar setting. By working through the exercises, students will gain a deeper understanding of the qualitative and quantitative relationships between theoretical probability and long run relative frequency. Particularly, students investigate the proximity of the relative frequency of an event to its probability and conclude, from data, the order on which the dispersion of the relative frequency diminishes. Key words: probability, law of large numbers, simulation, estimation

Includes project file for Minitab and coding for a dice rolling simulation.

• ### Buffon's Needle JAVA Sourcecode

This is a "Building Block" for the Buffon Needle problem. The source code and compile code are included as well as separate files for each. Users able to test the applet to determine if it meets their needs.

• ### A Compendium of Clean Graphs in R

This compendium facilitates the creation of good graphs by presenting a set of concrete examples, ranging from the trivial to the advanced. The graphs can all be reproduced and adjusted by copy-pasting code into the R console. Almost every example in this compendium is driven by the same philosophy: A good graph is a simple graph, in the Einsteinian sense that a graph should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler.  A note for R fans: the majority of our plots have been created in base R, but you will encounter some examples in ggplot.
