188- Beyond Pictures of Spinners and Dice: Probability through Simulations

Friday, November 30, 2012: 12:30 PM-2:00 PM
Crystal Ballroom C (Hyatt)
Lead Speaker:
Corey Andreasen

Beginning with physical simulations using tools such as dice and coins, participants will explore probability as a relative frequency. We will then make a concrete transition to technology (graphing calculators and software) to generate many trials quickly. We will explore conditional probability, independence, and the law of large numbers.
