|Simulating quickly a large number of repetitions of an experiment is a powerful tool in statistics. Simulations can be performed and explored individually by students in the class-room with graphics calculators like the TI83Plus. Applications are estimating the probability of an event, predicting the profit in a game of chance, approximating the probability distribution of a random variable, drawing samples from a population, testing the quality of the random number generator. These applications will be illustrated with examples.|
