Probability Experiments on the web:
1. Spinner Applet: I liked this one very much... You can adjust the spinner anyway you want. You can also define the number of sectors. You can perform thousands of spinner experiments all at once. Try, it's here: http://www.shodor.org/interactivate/activities/spinner3/index.html
