 The One-Dimensional Random Walk Created by authors Gary McGath and Paul Trunfio of Boston University's Center for Polymer Studies, this is the description and instructions for the One-Dimensional Random Walk applet. This Applet relates random coin-flipping to random motion. It strives to show that randomness (coin-flipping) leads to some sort of predictable outcome (the bell-shaped curve). http://polymer.bu.edu/java/java/1drw/RandWalk1D.html
 Monte Carlo Estimation for Pi This is the description and instructions for the Monte Carlo Estimation of Pi applet. It is a simulation of throwing darts at a figure of a circle inscribed in a square. It shows the relationship between the geometry of the figure and the statistical outcome of throwing the darts. http://polymer.bu.edu/java/java/montepi/MontePi.html
 Patterns in Nature This page is a companion to the Exploring Patterns in Nature Curriculum Guides (see related pages) developed by the Center for Polymer Studies. It represents several basic Java Applets which illustrate basic concepts in statistical mechanics and fractals. Note that these programs do not necessarily match the software instructions in our curriculum guides. The guides were written to correspond to... http://polymer.bu.edu/java/
 Can You Beat Randomness: The Lottery Game This is the description and instructions for the Can You Beat Randomness? : The Lottery Game applet. It is a simulation of flipping coins. Students are asked to make conjectures about randomness and how certain strategies affect randomness. It strives to show the "growth of order out of randomness." This is a great resource for any mathematics classroom interested in statistics and... http://polymer.bu.edu/java/java/winning/WinningStreak.html
 The Two-Dimensional Random Walk This is the description and instructions for the Two-Dimensional Random Walk applet. This applet, presented by Boston University's Center for Polymer Studies, relates random coin-flipping to random motion but in more than one direction (dimension). It covers mean squared distance in the discussion. Overall, this is a nice interactive resource for a statistics classroom. http://polymer.bu.edu/java/java/2drw/RandWalk2D.html
