**Student Estimates of Probability and Uncertainty in Advanced Laboratory and Statistical Physics Courses**
D. Mountcastle, B. Bucy, and J. Thompson,
PERC 2007 Proceedings, 152-155.

Equilibrium properties of macroscopic systems are highly predictable as n, the number of particles approaches and exceeds Avogadro's number; theories of statistical physics depend on…

**Assessing Student Understanding of Partial Derivatives in Thermodynamics**
J. Thompson, B. Bucy, and D. Mountcastle,
PERC 2005 Proceedings, 77-80.

We are engaged in a research project to study teaching and learning in upper-level thermal physics courses. We have begun to explore student functional understanding of mathematical…

**STP Central Limit Theorem Program**The CentralLimitTheorem program simulates a random additive process to illustrate that the distribution of the sum is a Gaussian, independent of the probability distribution of the…

This applet simulates the binomial distribution. The user can control the population proportion, the sample size and the number of samples. Once the samples are drawn, the number of…
