Description: The applet calculates the event space of throwing six-sided dice and tossing coins. The user can select any number of dice up to a maximum of 4 and similarly any number of coins up to a maximum of 10. All the possible outcome of coins landing with the number of "Tails" facing up and all the possible outcome of the sums of the dice face-value are calculated and their frequency distributions are plotted.

Comment:This applet used in conjunction with a hands-on acitivity can serve as a good reinforcement for frequency distribution of various coin tosses and dice roll. The logical extension would be to go from the sums of dice to the products of dice.
