Two Colors Applet

This Two Colors Applet interactive also includes:

Find the box with two green balls. The applet uses six balls, three green and three red, and hides them in three boxes. Pupils choose a box and click on it to reveal the color of balls inside. Using the chosen box, the simulation keeps track of whether the first ball was green and if both balls were green. Learners determine the conditional probability the second ball is green given the first one is green.
