A Nice Stats Tool for Intro-Stats

Had some time to scan through some new (to me) blogs this weekend and one of the things I found was this graphic-visual-calculator by Nathaniel Johnston. It seems like an interesting tool for use by students at home because it is not ad-ridden or powered by Java so it loads quickly and works on almost any platform. It will calculate normal, Student's-t, chi-square and F distributions and do p-values for one or two tails, as well as areas around the mean on one or both sides. Check it out here.

My quick survey of his blog indicates he has lots of stuff on calculus as well, and computing..and he seems to be big on computer games and works them into problems and teaching. See his blog here.
