Using Arc and Star Office on Math Department computers

Sampling Distribution Demo  Click on Basics, then on Distribution of the Mean. (May take a while.) Other demos may be worth exploring.

Another Sampling Distribution Simulation

Confidence Interval Simulation

Java applet for bivariate normal distribution plus sample (Often slow to load)

Least squares demo (Might not work with Netscape)

Least absolute deviation  and least squares demo (Doesn't always work.)

Outlier  demo (If your browser goes to http://www.stat.sc.edu/%7Ewest/javahtml/Regression.html, gf try replacing it with http://www.stat.sc.edu/~west/javahtml/Regression.html -- in other words,  replacing %7Ewest in the URL with ~west.)
