Unit 5, Lesson 11# Conducting a Simulation to Estimate the Probability of an Event (Continued)

EngageNY 45 min(s)

Students learn to use two more devices in simulations: colored disks and a random number table. In the last lesson, we used coins, number cubes, and cards to carry out simulations. Ask students what device they would use to simulate problems in which the probability of winning in a single outcome is Put ten disks in a bag, three of which are green (representing a hit), and seven are red (representing a non-hit).
