Teachers play Russian Egg Roulette


Many students often wonder what their teachers do during their lunch break.  Some teachers spend the time in their classrooms eating a quiet snack, others venture down to the staff lounge and spend their thirty minutes eating and enjoying the company of their colleagues.

Thursday, December 19, Mr. Jason Capps and Mrs. Jennifer Coronado decided to play a little game of Russian Egg Roulette to calculate Conditional Probability for their AP Statistics class.

The students found the odds of conditionally finding raw eggs on the first and seventh round as (4/12)(8/11) (7/10)(6/9)(5/8)(4/7)(3/6) = .02

Mrs Coronado said that the activity “was fun and totally unrealistic, but it helps teach how statistics occur in real life all the time.”
