Understand reliability of relative frequency depends on the number of times a test is conducted

Relative frequency (experimental probability) is used when probability is being estimated using the outcomes of an experiment or trial, when theoretical probability cannot be used. For example, when using a biased dice, the probability of getting each number is no longer 1/6. To be able to assign a probability to each number, an experiment would need to be conducted. From the experimental results, the relative frequency could be calculated.  In this class students will learn the difference between theoretical and experimental probability and how to calculate theoretical probability.
