Activity: How Random!
Go to: (opens a new window)
Description: In this activity, students use simulations and graphs to explore the common-sense 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.
