It's a Tie

This problem presents students with a situation in which the probability of an event must be determined. Students make a prediction about the probability of Kaia's father wearing the same tie during one week and simulate the event with an experiment to confirm their prediction with the experimental probability. Additional resources for the teacher are provided along with a printable version of the problem.
