Day 79 – Dice and Exponential Decay

In a lesson that I got from Twitter colleagues, I introduced the idea of exponential decay with a dice simulation. My classes really got into the rolling, I think because I told them that the dice “died” when it landed on one or six. This group thought it was funny to put money on the floor like they were betting. Thank god no one came to observe today.
