When looking at experimental vs theoretical probability, I use this at the start of the lesson as a stimulus.
Think about tossing a coin. Is it possible to throw 14 heads in a row? We then discuss, look at this simulation, and set it running using “Longest run of heads” set to 14. May take the rest of the lesson to run.
