Data Maker
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.


Features

> 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 of trials.
> 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 repeated.
> 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.
