Student Outcomes

  • Students learn simulation as a method for estimating probabilities that can be used for problems in which it is difficult to collect data by experimentation or by developing theoretical probability models.
  • Students learn how to perform simulations to estimate probabilities.
  • Students use various devices to perform simulations (e.g., coin, number cube, cards).
  • Students compare estimated probabilities from simulations to theoretical probabilities.
