Url: http://enlvm.usu.edu/ma/nav/activity.jsp?sid=nlvm&cid=4_2&lid=117
Publisher: Utah State University.
Description: Brought to you by Utah State University, this probability game is an electronic version of the old TV game show "Let's Make a Deal." This virtual manipulative allows users to investigate probabilities of sticking with a decision, or switching. This is a lesson designed to develop user's understanding of theoretical probability, using a simulation, for the chance of winning what's behind door number 1, 2, or 3. A good resource for teachers of mathematics courses ranging from statistics to combinatorics, this virtual manipulative is a fun way to learn about Monte Carlo simulations, experimental and theoretical probabilities, and the Law of Large Numbers.
