Collecting Prizes from Cereal Boxes

Collecting Prizes from Cereal Boxes

This applet is a probabilistic study of picking prizes from an unlimited supply of cereal boxes. The applet helps to answer how many boxes of cereal need to be purchased to have a 50/50 chance of getting all the prizes. This is a fun, yet education, activity for any classroom interested in statistics or probability.
