Parking Lot Simulation Part 1: An attendant must park 32 different cars. He has a choice of five different parking lots in which to park them. He decides to make it a game. Each time he encounters a “STOP” sign, he flips a coin to determine which way he will turn. If the coin lands heads-up, he turns to the right. If the coin lands tails-up, he turns to the left. What parking lot would you expect to have the greatest number of cars? Why? What parking lot would you expect to have the least number of cars? Why?
Parking Lot Simulation Part 2: You are the parking attendant. Place a car (marker) at the starting point. Move the marker down until you encounter a “STOP” sign. Remember, in order to determine which way to turn, you must flip a coin (heads=right, tails=left). Continue to move the marker down toward the parking lots, stopping at each “STOP” sign and flipping the coin to determine which way to turn. Upon reaching a parking lot, shade in one section of the appropriate bar graph. Continue this process until you have parked all thirty-two cars.
Parking Lot Simulation Part 3: 1.What fraction of the cars are in each of the following lots: Lot 1: _____ Lot 2: _____ Lot 3: _____ Lot 4_____ Lot 5_____ 2.In which lot(s) did you find the greatest number of cars? Is this what you predicted? 3.In which lot(s) did you find the least number of cars? Is this what you predicted? 4.Using what you know about probability, why do you think some parking lots have more cars than other parking lots? 5.If you had to park one more car, in which lot would you expect it to be parked? Why?
Rolling Dice – Rain or Shine? Think about: How well can you predict what the weather will be tomorrow? How well can you predict what the weather will be next week? How well can you predict how many sunny days there will be next month?
Rolling Dice – Rain or Shine? Before (look at simulation to the right to answer) How many days do you think will be sunny? Explain your answer. How many days do you think will be rainy? Explain your answer. Roll a 1,2, or 3 stays rainy. Roll a 4,5, or 6 go to sunny Roll a 1,2,3, or 4 stays sunny. Roll a 5 or 6 go to rain Roll a 1,2, or 3 stays rainy. Roll a 4,5, or 6 go to sunny
Rolling Dice – Rain or Shine? Simulation: You are going to start with a sunny day. Roll one die to find out what the weather is the next day. You will keep track for one month (31days).
Rolling Dice – Rain or Shine? After the simulation How many days were sunny? How many days were rainy? How close were your predictions? Change the model to make a simulation where it rains more than it shines.
Rolling Dice – Rain or Shine? After the simulation Change the model to make a simulation where the weather changes a lot. Change the model to make a simulation where it is usually sunny but when it rains it rains for a long time.
Rolling Dice – Cookie Bin Problem: The Cookie Bin is a small shop that bakes and sells cookies at an indoor shopping mall. The owner plans to introduce a new bite-sized chocolate- chip cookie, to be called "Chippies," to her line of products. She would like to have each cookie contain at least five chocolate chips. To minimize the cost of ingredients, she wants to determine the least number of chocolate chips that need to be mixed into a batch of dough for a dozen Chippies so as to meet the five-chip-per-cookie minimum. How many chocolate chips -should she use for each batch?
Rolling Dice – Cookie Bin Analysis: Assume that each chip placed into the dough for one dozen cookies has an equally likely chance of ending up in anyone of the twelve cookies made from that batch. One approach to solving this problem is to simulate the random placement of chocolate chips into the individual cookies in the batch.
Rolling Dice – Cookie Bin Since each cookie should contain at least five chips, at least sixty chocolate chips must be mixed into the cookie dough. A dodecahedral (12-sided) die can: be rolled to determine which of the cookies is to get a given chocolate chip. By rolling the die at least sixty times and recording each result, we can determine the number of cookies containing five or more chips.
Rolling Dice – Cookie Bin A picture of twelve Chippies, without chocolate chips, is shown. Roll a dodecahedral die exactly sixty times and record each result by drawing a dot (chocolate chip) on the cookie corresponding to that roll. After the sixty chocolate chips have been randomly placed, determine the number of cookies that contain five or more chips.
