With probability, we must constantly be discussing with students what takes place in experiments vs theoretically. This can be hard for them to understand as the idea of “long run” is so abstract. One way to discuss this further is to potentially have them all play in partners and then tally up results as a class. What do you notice now? We can then highlight that as we have more trials, we can expect the experimental results to get closer to the theoretical probability.
