MDM4U More Binomial Distribution; beginning simulations 2016-04-18

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.

(Edit: Apparently I didn’t click the “Publish” button on this post, so it’s appearing just before noon on the 19th instead of 6pm on the 18th. Sorry folks!)
