Mr Scott
Experimental Probability?
what is..
If we cant figure out the probability of something with our brains then we need to conduct an
EXPERIMENT
.
We see how many times something happens in our experiment and then use our results to calculate the probability of it happening.
So whats the plan?
Dice are supposed to be
FAIR
. Casinos in particular will take extra precautions to make sure their dice aren't
BIASED
.
We are going to make our own dice and conduct an experiment to see if each side has an
EQUAL PROBABILITY
of being rolled.
Before the experiment lets get ready to record the results of our TRIALS.
