Coin Toss Exercise in Probability

Overview

There are two parts to this assignment. Part 1 (subjective probability), you will guess the percent of times that the coin will land on its top face, or "heads." Part 2 (frequency probability), you will record your actual results from the 60 tosses in an Excel spreadsheet.

Action Items

For this assignment, take ten coins, put them in a large cup, shake the cup well to ensure mixing, toss the coins on a flat counter, and record the number of times that the coin lands on its top face, or "heads". Then you will repeat that same process for a total of 60 tosses. (There is a link below that will do this electronically.) In Part One you will be asked to guess the percent of the times that you will get 0, 1, 2, . . . 10 "heads." This is an educated guess and will be graded on certain parameters, such as "Does the distribution add up to one?" and "Is there a logical symmetry to the distribution?" Complete Part One before proceeding to Part Two. Hint: Remember that any of the outcomes listed is possible. You may need to carry some "guesses" to three decimal places.

In Part Two, record your actual results from the 60 tosses in an Excel spreadsheet. This completed spreadsheet should be included in the appendix of your project. As an alternative to actually tossing the coins, you may toss them virtually using this Virtual Coin Toss [link: http://video.franklin.edu/Franklin/Math/215/coinToss.html]. You will be able to copy and paste the results directly into your Excel spreadsheet.

Create a report that contains the following:

1. An introduction explaining the experiment. (I paragraph)

2. Part 1 results (subjective probability).

3. Part 2 results (frequency probability).

4. An explanation of what you learned by working on this project.

5. A copy of your Excel spreadsheet (add this as an appendix).
