popup. Probability affects everything and it is a gamble that you take when you are trying to do something that involves chances and risks. Seeing the coin flip reminded me of child hood games when we would play heads or tails for candy the more we played the better candy I was able to get. While looking at the game of dice games are still played that involves dice. I love to play yahtzee with the kids an even with the five different dice it is still difficult to get all the numbers that are needed to complete certain required sets in the games. Trying to help students understand how probability works might be a difficult task as there are no certain boundaries or formulas that can be properly applied. Probability is a chance game and that is difficult to teach. Having visual tools to help show the students how it really plays out will give them a better understanding of how things change.

Probability is and always will be about chance. The greater chance you take the better options you have to get the results you want. The simulated games that we used during this week’s lessons really were valuable tools to show help give a visual on that increased chance. Teaching this lesson to students will need visual aids like the ones we have used and while it may not completely give them a total understanding it might help a bit.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
