Lessons 2: Randomness Within Bounds
Some things can move in random patterns, but they do this only in a confined space. For instance, a honeybee might fly around the inside of a room in a random fashion, but the overall flight pattern all fits within the volume of the room.
Doing the science
- Start the Weather simulation.
- Click the "Spin" button. Each spin collects data over a 30-year time period.
- Record your data in Table 1 below. A red icon indicates an increase in temperature of 0.1 ºF. A blue icon indicates a decrease in temperature of 0.1 ºF.
- Click the "Spin" button and record your data in the graph below for a total of 30 spins.
