Two Colors Applet

This activity allows the user to simulate pulling red and green balls out of three boxes. The boxes are pre-arranged so that there are two red balls in one box, two green balls in another, and one green and one red ball in the third. The user can shuffle the order of the boxes and the order of the balls in the boxes. To run in single trial mode, click on one of the box to see if the first ball is green. If it is, click on the box again to see if the second ball is green also. A count will be kept of the results. To run in multiple trial mode, enter the number of trials desired in the box and click on the run multiple trials button. This activity would work well in groups of two to three for about twenty minutes if you use the exploration questions provided and ten minutes otherwise.
