Activity: Buffon’s Needle
Suppose you drop your pen onto a wooden floor. If the pen is the same length as the boards are wide, what is the probability that the pen will lie across a join? This problem may seem somewhat obscure but the answer is sure to surprise. Another interesting question, why is it called Buffon’s needle?
