MA121 links and demos



I’m having trouble opening any links or using the “demo” pages from the Rice University online textbook. I have enabled everything to work on my computer but still can’t get them to work. They don’t work on my phone or other computers. Any advice?
Will I need to use the “Binomial Calculator” or other links for the Credited Final?
