The emergence of JAVA as a platform-independent web programming language has encouraged individuals to develop interactive demonstration software that can be accessed via any JAVA-capable browser.

Some of our favorite individual JAVA applets (selected from the sites listed below):

- Guessing Correlations - a neat "game" to show the relationship between correlations and scatterplots - ten minutes should get the ideas across to almost any student. Part of the CUWU Statistical Program at Illinois-Champaign-Urbana.
- Regression - see the effects of adding an outlier (Webster West - S. Carolina).
- Histogram - check the effect of bin size on Old Faithful data (Webster West - S. Carolina).
- Effect of a "Small" Effect - visualization of the impact of a difference in group means on job candidate selection (Mark Lane - Rice).
- Power of a Hypothesis Test - nice graphical look at power for a test of a mean (Todd Ogden - S. Carolina).
- Let's Make a Deal version done by Webster West is quick to play and includes an explanation.
