written by the Kansas State Physics Education Research Group and Dean A. Zollman
This resource shows the relation between quantum wave functions and probabilities.  The user can draw a 1D wavefunction, and observe the resultant probability distribution.  Both the probability density at a single point and the probability in any interval can be measured.
