Law of Averages Applet
Users toss a virtual coin or a virtual die to investigate the law of averages. The applet graphs the percentage of successes observed in 1 to 10000 tosses. The outcomes of multiple experiments (consisting of 10000 tosses each) can be graphed on the same plot to faciliate visualization of trends. Activities are provided to facilitate thinking about the law of averages with the applet.
