STATISTICAL RESOURCE CENTER (SRC) is a collection of interactive, graphical JAVA applets for teaching basic statistics. The SRC consists of a regression applet, several probability applets, and twelve applets exploring statistical distributions. The SRC URL is The regression applet displays a scattergram with an interactive regression guess-line as well as the line of best fit. The probability applets employ video clips to demonstrate the games of poker, craps, roulette, and the associated probabilities. SRC statistical distribution applets allow a graphical interactive exploration of the shape and location of the Gaussian, Student, Chi-squared and Fisher distributions. The applets also allow remote computations of the distribution critical points and tail probabilities over the Internet. All the numerical computations are supplemented with interactive animated graphical presentations, which demonstrate the meaning of the computed values.
