This tool would work well for students to come up with their own formula for
finding probabilities of independent events. If the applet were used after
the formula was given to the students, I think they would lose interest almost
immediately. The graphic makes this activity a little more exciting. I think
the applet could be improved if multiple launches could be made at once, rather
than clicking the mouse 1000 times.
