AFDA Probability and Law of Large Numbers

This AFDA Probability and Law of Large Numbers performance task also includes:

The more trials scholars perform, the closer they'll likely be to the true value. After designing a probability experiment, young mathematicians conduct the experiment for five different numbers of trials. They then analyze the results, seeing how the number of trials affects how close the experimental probability is to the theoretical probability.
