Examining Cylindrical Dice

Dustin L. Jones 

February 2009, Volume 102, Issue 6, Page 420

Abstract:
An activity where prospective mathematics teachers made hypotheses about the dimensions of a fair cylindrical die and conducted experiments with different cylinders. He also provides a model that estimates the probability that a cylinder would land on the lateral surface, depending on the height and diameter of the cylinder.
