MDM4U – Culminating Project (30% of final grade)

Culminating Project – Part 1 (15% of Final Grade)

Name: ____________________________ Due Date: ______________________________

· Part 1 of your culminating project will consist of creating a casino style game, with virtually no limitations.

o For example, using dice, a deck of cards, coins, or any other type of tool you can think of.

· All mathematical calculations are to be completed in a spreadsheet program (Excel) or other data management software.

Your report should have the following headings and each bullet should be contained under that heading:

Title Page (1 page)

· Straight forward; clear, concise, to the point.

Introduction (Approx. 0.5-1 page)

· Interest the reader by summarizing a game, similar to how a commercial would advertise a poker website.

· Introduce and explain the rules of your game fully. You should be very particular to what rewards (or penalties) will be given for particular outcomes. For example,

o “If you flip heads on the second trial, you win two times the number of money you bet…”

Analysis (1-3 pages)

· Distribution Type

o Describe your distribution as discrete or continuous and identify the distribution with justification. For example,

▪ “This game is considered to be a binomial distribution because…”

· Probability Distribution Table

o In Excel or another data management program, create a probability distribution table with the probability of each possible outcome calculated using the appropriate formula.

· Probability Distribution Graph

o Graph the information from your probability distribution table. Explain your results fully. For example,

▪ “Outcome x1 offers the best possible probability for the player to win, while the outcome x2 offers the best possible probability for the casino to win.”

· Expected Value

o Calculate the expected value in Excel or another data management program and explain what the casino should charge in order to have a fair game. You could also explain what a real casino may charge in order to make a profit. Use justification.

Conclusion (Approx. 0.5-1 page)

· Summarize your findings and relate them to why one would wish to run the game, or possibly play the game.

· Mention any flaws your game has in favour or against the casino.

Creativity

So … so … it looks

like it was made up

at the last minute. Not bad. You had to think to

create this game. WOW!!! What a

great idea!

Originality

Looks like a game

from the store … Hmmm… I’ve seen something like this game

before. Not really new. Hmmm … something

different here … I have not seen this

idea before. Hey you should

patent this … Looks like you spent some time thinking this up.

Realism You’ve got to be

kidding … you expect me to play this game??? It’s okay … I know

you’re trying. You made me want to

bet. Had fun … Felt like I was going to win … I actually got

excited!!! Felt like I was at Vegas … Where is Wayne Newton

anyway???

Gambler

Interest Yawn… It’s okay, but …

I’d rather get something to eat. Hey it’s not bad …

With some work it could be great. I could play this

game forever. You should market this.
