Contributed By


In this activity, students spin a spinner or roll dice to obtain experimental data for their trials. The applet keeps track of their experiments by tallying the results in a table. This activity allows students to explore experimental probabilities in order to compare them with theoretical probabilities. This activity includes supplemental materials, including background information about the topics covered, a description of how to use the application, and exploration questions for use with the java applet.
