The Big Idea
What factors make the probability of hitting an opponent using a bow and arrow a non uniform probability distribution?
Sub-questions (to be presented at key moments during the lesson, but not all in the beginning)
- Why do problems state: given you hit the target every time?
- When throwing darts at the target, in each of the three trials, what did you feel was different in each throw?
- How may the outcome of the event be different if the experimental trials were performed outside?
- What features do you notice about the dartboard used and how are these features different from hitting an opponent?
- What do you notice about the placement of the dartboard and how might this placement affect the probability of hitting a target?
