The Stirling Recording Sheet for Experiments in Probability

This article explains the use of a recording sheet for experiments in probability and describes some advantages from using it. The author, G. Giles, offers many different examples to illustrate this mathematical concept. Some of these include: automatic counting, percentage of wins, relative frequency, visible trends, estimating in advance, construction of the recording sheet, Pascal's triangle, binomial coefficients, confidence limits, distribution of means, and independent events. Giles strives to help students, and teachers alike, understand how the concepts of probabilities and how to best learn or teach these methods.
