Coin Toss

Description:This aplet investigates the common charity game consisting of tossing of a coin onto a square grid. It requires only knowledge of quadratic functions and can be used at a number of levels: to illustrate the convergence of experimental values towards theoretical ones, to investigate fitting a quadratic curve to experimental data, and to introduce the idea of a probability function.
