This is a chapter of the Probability and Statistics EBook describing the theory and applications of Normal Approximation to Poisson distribution.
This webpage includes links to applets which allow the user to calculate normal probabilities and z-scores. It also demonstrates how to use normal probability tables.
This webpage provides a very detailed and high-quality description of the Cauchy Distribution.
Goal of problem - estimate \(\pi\). Part of the Virtual Laboratories in Probability and Statistics.
Approaches problem from a calculus viewpoint where the goal is to estimate the probability of a needle of fixed length to land on a line of equally spaced parallel lines.
This Java Applet demonstrates the Normal approximation to Binomial distribution. A "Begin" button on the left starts the applet. Browser is required to support Java 1.1+.

This is a basic article on the gamma distribution. The article fits the general format of Wolfram MathWorld articles on distributions: the basic properties are given with some derivations.
This is an interactive applet for the gamma distribution requiring the Wolfram CDF player.
A video tutorial on using R to sample from various distributions.
