to me that the calculations of the theoretical probabilities of there being 0
pairs, 1 pair, or 2 pairs left are beyond what most Gr. 5 or Gr. 6 students
would be able to handle, so although this is a fun simulation, other than making
some predictions about these probabilities, there wouldn't be much the students
could do with it.
