You've done a great job designing the applelet! We've been working on
probability and I can't wait to use it with my students.
In response to your question, as a teacher,I would rather have the students
compute both probabilities. Initially, I would have them find the theoretical
probability before running the simulation. Then I would run the simulation for
probably 50 trials and compare the probabilities. I would then run the
simulation for 100, 200, etc. probabilities so that they can see the more times
the experiment is performed, the closer the results will be to the theoretical
probability.
