Description:

Looking at the sum of two dice, students will determine the theoretical probability for each sum and then answer some questions using this information. Next, they will use Minitab or another software package to simulate the tossing of two dice and determining the sum. Based on their simulation, they will answer a set of probability questions. Then generating a larger sample, they will investigate what happens to the experimental probability as the sample size increases.

Student Learning Outcomes: • The student will calculate theoretical and empirical probabilities. • The student will appraise the differences between the two types of probabilities. • The student will demonstrate an understanding of long-term probabilities.
