TAS: Simulating randomness
by David Tynan


• Introduction of the idea of the random number generators to simulate chance events
• The use of small random samples as a method for estimating the mean


pseudo-random number generators, integer function, random sampling

About the Lesson

Randomness and chance affect events that have a major impact on our lives. In this task we explore methods for simulation randomness, and how the mathematics of chance can be used to analyse events affected by random factors.
