This resource consists of a Java applet and expository text. The applet is a simulation of the matching experiment, which consists of a random permutation of the first n positive integers. The random variable of interest is the number of matches (the number of integers in the random permutation that are in their correct positions). The applet illustrates the distribution of the number of matches and the convergence to the Poisson distribution.

This resource consists of a Java applet and expository text. The applet is a simulation of the Monty Hall experiment: a car is behind one door, goats are behind the other two doors. The player chooses a door and then the host opens another door. The player is given the option of switching to the remaining door. The stochastic behavior of the host and the probability of the player switching can be specified.
