Description: 
In this activity, students use simulations and graphs to explore the commonsense notion that repeatedly ﬂipping a coin results in “heads up” about half of the time. First, students simulate an experiment by representing single coin ﬂips with random numbers. Next, they use a given formula to simulate multiple coin ﬂips at once, allowing them to perform a large number of trials easily. Last, they create a histogram of their data, observing that the data generally vary around the mean.
