Ridley College Data Management Class Learns About Probability Through Making Games


This morning the Grade 12 Data Management classes set up gaming stations for the Lower School students.  The Grade 12 students created  ‘casino-style games’ as a part of a probability and expectation project. They had to make a game for which they could determine the probability distribution. Further, they were to generate a game with a reasonable expectation of ‘fairness’ in order to give the gamer (participant) a legitimate gaming experience.  Today the games were put to the test.
