**1.4 Heads, Heads, Heads**

## TODAY'S AGENDA: We are practicing experimental probability with flipping 3 coins at the same time.

1) Read the instructions below.
2) Complete pages 24, 25, 26, and 27 with technology or a set of 3 coins. |

**Flipping Coins**

In this activity, you will flip 3 coins at the same time. Getting 3 heads is called a "

**successful**" result. Any other result is called "

**unsuccessful**." You will flip the set of coins exactly 40 times. The 40 flips are a

**sample**.

**Sample**

It is a small group of results taken from a larger group. It is easy to analyse. You could flip the coins 8,000,000 times. That would be a much larger sample.

Now go to page 24 and follow the step.
