Explorations with Chance
Created by Larry L. Hatfield for Illuminations: Resources for Teaching Mathematics, this lesson allows students to examine probabilities of outcomes. Cast in a game like context, reasoning about probability can be stimulated by questions of fairness. Students will predict and determine the fairness of games, then learn how to make an unfair game fair. They will organize and conduct an...

Belief in the Law of Small Numbers
People have erroneous intuitions about the laws of chance. In particular, they regard a sample randomly drawn from a population as highly representative, that is, similar to the population in all essential characteristics. The prevalence of the belief and its unfortunate consequences for psychological research are illustrated by the responses of professional psychologists to a questionnaire...

Probability Spaces
Created by Kyle Siegrist of the University of AlabamaHuntsville, this is an online, interactive lesson on probability spaces. The resource provides examples, exercises, and applets that cover conditional probability, independence, and several modes of convergence that are appropriate for random variables. This section also covers probability space, the paradigm of a random experiment and its...

Statistical Applets: Probability
Created by authors Duckworth, McCabe, Moore and Sclove for W.H. Freeman and Co., this applet simulates flipping a coin to show how observed probability approaches true probability over time. It accompanies "Practice of Business Statistics," but can be used without this text. Even though brief, this is still a fine resource for an introductory statistics course.

A Variation on Coin Tossing Experiments
This article, created by P.J. Butt of City of London School, explains a coin tossing activity emphasizing the central limit theorem and binomial distributions. Graphs and charts help better illustrate these concepts. While brief, this is still a nice introduction to these statistical methods.
