This program is invaluable
for the demonstration of basic probability experiments all the way
up to advanced statistical theoretical distributions.
The user can select from a variety of standard probability scenarios,
from experiments to sampling, and view both tables and graphs of
resulting statistics. There is also the option to generate sequences
of numbers from entering the formula for the nth term.
> User friendly
menu system allows easy input of parameters.
> Simulate dice rolling on any number of die and any number of
sides to the dice. Choice to either sum the scores, calculate the
product of them, record the minimum or maximum score, or calculate
the difference (when only 2 dice).
> Simulate tossing any number of fair coins any number of times
and record the number of heads and tails.
> Simulate withdrawal of any number of objects with or without
replacement from a bag containing any number of coloured objects.
Display the relative frequency of a certain colour against the number
> Theoretical probability distributions of Binomial, Poisson,
Normal, Exponential and Geometrical can be displayed - graphs of
probability distribution functions can be quickly created to support
the background to Hypothesis testing.
> Samples can be taken from each of these theoretical distributions
- either single samples or sample means of any sample size can be
> Sequence formulae can be entered in terms of n with the resulting
terms calculated. In addition, a graph of the sequence value against
the term number can be displayed.
> All the data that is generated by program is available in lists
1, 2 and 3 for further analysis if required.
