We practised using binomial distributions using some textbook questions today (Page 386 #7, 8ab).
For homework you have Page 386 #10, and Page 406 #7-10.
We then spent about 30 minutes learning the basics of creating a dice simulation using a spreadsheet. Most people used Google Sheets. To generate a random die roll we used the formula
We learned to sum cell values and fill formulas (by dragging the cursor or highlighting and pressing Ctrl+D).
Tomorrow we’ll continue with this work and develop some more complex simulations.
