In "Double Down," three students who have taught themselves how to count cards in Blackjack find that they are tied up in a money-laundering scheme, and are fearful of being murdered.
This activity will investigate a simplified version of a time series analysis. If Charlie can graph the winnings over time, he may be able to predict future values or future "winnings."
