The Game of PIG

Pig is an introduction to the core concepts of probability and expected value as well as the supporting ideas of “randomness,” “equally likely,” “independent events,” “in the long run,” “theoretical versus experimental probability,” and “mean, median and mode.” These concepts are contextualized in the unit problem, which involves determining the best strategy to win the most points in the Game of Pig. The concepts implied in solving Pig are represented in various ways using histograms, tree diagrams, area models or “rugs,” and sample spaces.

Experimental error

Normal distributions Intuitively & Mathematically – by hand, then by calculator

Standard pendulum – mean and standard deviation of period

What affects the period?

Curve fitting

Experimental data to find equation for period

Enduring Understandings:

Find functions to fit data and make predictions.

Use the mean and standard deviation of a data set to fit it to a normal distribution, estimate population percentages and decide if data is normal.
