Dice Lab: Instructor's Guide

Main Ideas

Estimated Time: 25 minutes

Prerequisite Knowledge

Previous experience with calculating probability would be ideal, although not strictly necessary.

Props/Equipment

• Computers with Excel
• A handout for each student
• Die for each group of students

Extensions

This activity is the first part of SPINS Lab 1. It is designed to follow Probabilities in the z-direction for a Spin-$\frac{1}{2}$ System and Probabilities for Different Spin-$\frac{1}{2}$ Stern Gerlach Analyzers.

The full lab is designed to be completed in a two hour lab block, while these individual activities are designed to be integrated into a normal lecture. We prefer to use the integrated activities, rather than the lab, but both are effective methods.
