Use a tool to build colored spinners (dials with pointers). Choose up to six equal-sized sectors. Choose up to four colors for the parts of each spinner. For example, make a three-part spinner with two blue sectors and one yellow sector. Test each spinner over a number of spins. See which color the pointer lands on each time. Watch the graph build and the numbers change in the results table after each spin. Compare the actual results with the expected results. This learning object is one in a series of six objects.
1. Students explore the difference between the information provided by short-run, medium-run and long-run data.
2. Students explore the relationship between sample space and likelihood of outcomes.
