with Allan Rossman and Beth Chance, Cal Poly - San Luis Obispo

The activity asks students to use a simulation-based approach, with an applet available here "http://www.rossmanchance.com/applets/power.html to investigate how likely a baseball player would be to convince a manager that he has improved his probability of getting a hit.
