Students learn that a simulation is a method of solving a problem by conducting an experiment that is similar to the situation in the problem. For example, a simulation can be used to find the probability that a baby will be a girl. Since there are two possible sexes for the baby, girl and boy, one simulation would be to flip a coin, where heads represents girl and tail represents boy. Note that there are many possible simulations for a given problem.
