Tool: Coin Flip Application - Dan Wilkerson
http://mathforum.org/mathtools/tool/248755/
The Coin Flip Generator is a lightweight online coin flip generator. Click "Flip Coin" to 
get started - "H" means heads, "T" means tails. Flips you've already made will appear 
below the coin. The app will also keep a tally of all of the flips that you make, along 
with the percentage of flips for each side. Results can be cleared with the "Clear" button 
underneath the tally. Optimized for mobile devices.

which can then be used for classroom display, preparing tutorial sheets and transparencies, 
generating and taking tests, and more.
