Students will ask the question, “Is it random?” in the activity, The Galton Board. Invented as a way to study the characteristics of normal distributions, the Galton board allows students to study where a chip lands after being dropped from an “exact” starting location. Computer simulations of Galton boards model the bell-shaped pattern very well – but will students get the same results with a real Galton board? Students will look for patterns and apply Pascal’s Triangle to their results. Grade: 6th
