LCR probability
by: Mrs. Flagg (over 4 years ago)

Description

This project is based on the game Left-Center-Right. The game consists of rolling 3 dice at a time. Each die has one side the says "L," one that says "R," one that says "C," and three that have a large dot. For the purposes of this project, I call the dot "O."

I created three data sets. Each data set consists of rolling the dice 10 times.

Guiding questions:

1) Look at the LCR dice. What do you predict is the probability of rolling an "L"? A "C"? An "R"? An "O"?

2) Look at the saved visualization "Full data pie chart." Are the results what you predicted? What would explain the differences?

3) Change the visualization to look at one data set at a time (you will need to come back to this screen and check the data set you wish to view), How do these compare to the full data set?

4) What do you predict would happen if you added more data sets? Try it and see what happens! Were your predictions correct? To contribute data, go to "contribute data" and enter the contributor key for your homeroom:
