Galton Board Model
A Galton board is a vertical board with n rows of pegs onto which the a ball drops and bounces down to the bottom (hitting either a peg to the right or left). It was created using the Easy Java Simulations (Ejs) modeling tool which allows to you to easily examine or modify the simulation if Ejs is installed.

Featured Filing Cabinet

Simulations to explore basic concepts of probability and applied to simple systems from Chapter 3 of Statistical and Thermal Physics.
