Rolling a Pair of Dice

Simulating Experiments (Probability & Statistics) 
Computer 
Lesson Plan 

[0]

In this lesson, students use Logo for a computer simulation for rolling dice to speed up the work such that they can "roll dice" more times, keeping track of the outcomes. It is not intended to be an ...
