QLD (Nspire): Simulating randomness
by David Tynan

Published on April 21, 2016

Objectives

• 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

Vocabulary

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.
