Dice World Cup Semi Finals
http://www.planetqhe.com/
Warm up for this summer's World Cup of soccer by playing the
dice world cup. In this event you run a simulation of the dice
world cup semifinals between four unusual dice and try to
calculate the winning probability for each die.
Which die is most likely to win if all the possible semifinals
are equally probable?
A 95K Microsoft Excel spreadsheet of the simulation is available for download.
The Probabilistic Learning Activities Network focuses on
using methods of probability to solve counterintuitive
problems and deepen students' understanding and competence in
the domain. There are over 30 other probability simulations on
this site, along with ideas on how to use them in the classroom.
