Summary: The article presents a way that gives students experience with probability applied to geometry. It could be used in a professional development setting for high school teachers. It uses a hands-on approach to address several content areas including geometry, probability, combinatorics, and algebra. Participants use deductive reasoning to analyze the various approaches to the problem and compare theoretical and experimental probabilities.
