A Peek into a Math WIN Time Class!

In Ms. Gary's and Mr. Stroy's WIN times, students designed their own experiment to explore the connection between theoretical and experimental probability. The rules of their game were to choose a quarter or half dollar, flip it, and have it land perfectly inside of a square on a grid without the coin touching any of the lines. Students worked together in pairs and used their knowledge of probability concepts as well as geometry to successfully complete this real world application of chance.
