Exploring
Theoretical and Experimental Probabilities


 
Theoretical and experimental probabilities are investigated by randomly throwing darts at a dartboard. Mathematical
Topics: area,
theoretical probability, and experimental
probability Mathematical
Thinking: Students
will make predictions, using geometric probabilities, about the number of darts that will hit the
circle of a dartboard. Technology:
Students
will use the "Area Probability (Throw Darts!)" Activity developed by
ExploreMath located at: http://www.exploremath.com/activities/Activity_page.cfm?ActivityID=43 Below
is a sample screen shot of the ExploreMath Activity.
