Title: Buffon's Needle: An Analysis and Simulation
Url: https://mste.illinois.edu/activity/buffon/
Creator: Reese, George
Publisher: University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
Description: Created by George Reese of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, this resource gives some background on the Buffon's needle problem. The site provides a link to an applet that allows one to simulate dropping a needle once, ten times, one-hundred times, or one-thousand times. One also has control over the length of the needle. Aside from the applet, the author provides an introduction, the simplest case, other cases, a brief series of questions and references. This is a nice case study of one statistical problem.
