This activity allows users to create and manipulate boxplots for either built-in data or their own data. Discussion, exercise questions, and lesson plans regarding boxplots are linked to the applet.
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.
