This page of Statistical Java describes 11 different probability distributions including the Binomial, Poisson, Negative Binomial, Geometric, T, Chi-squared, Gamma, Weibull, Log-Normal, Beta, and F. Each distribution has its own applet in which users can manipulate the parameters to see how the distribution changes. The parameters are described on the main page as well as situations that would use each distribution. The equations of the distributions are not given. To select between the different applets you can click on Statistical Theory, Probability Distributions and then the Main Page. At the bottom of this page you can make your applet selection. This page was formerly located at http://www.stat.vt.edu/~sundar/java/applets/
This collection of Analysis Tools can assist students and researchers with questions about study desgin, data analysis, and probability. Topics include sample size, power, survival, binomial probabilities, interaction, Fisher's exact test, one and two sample tests, and more.
Use the Sample Size Calculator to determine the sample size you need in order to get results that reflect the target population as precisely as needed. You can also find the level of precision you have in an existing sample. The site also describes terms you need to know to understand confidence intervals and what they mean.
