# Coin Toss Probability

## Coin Toss Probability

Students will code an investigation to see how trial size impacts the probability of an event.

Students will code the computer to:

• Randomly choose an event

• Set the number of trials for an investigation

• Keep track of how many times an event occurs

• Create a graph using the data

Time: maybe 3 60 minute sessions
