This applet simulates flipping a coin. The user can select the probability of a single coin flip landing with the heads side facing up. The user can set through the simulation or let it run. A graph shows the long run behavior of (the number of Heads - the number of Tails) out of N trials. A teacher could use this applet to develop a lesson. The authors notes that the applet may not run on a Mac.
