Curses and Re-Curses! It's Happening Again.

Pupils study basic recursion by exploring patterns in the data they generate from two simple probability-based experiments. In the first, students flip a coin to discover how many times they must flip it before it lands on "heads." They do ten trials. Pupils create a par graph of the information, working as a class to summarize the results.

Lesson Planet is a wonderful resource. I can easily search for lesson ideas and love the great printables. Lesson Planet has cut down on my planning time because I can usually find tried and true lessons on any subject. Why reinvent the wheel?
