Probability Lab - Experimental versus Expected Values

Students compare experimental probability results with expected theoretical values. They study basic probability expected values for the flip of a fair coin and the roll of a fair die. They accumulate experimental data based on actual experiments with a coin and a die. They use a graphing calculator to simulate further experimental values. Finally, they hypothesize as to the results of even further simulated trials
