In the * Tossing coins* activity (page 13), some students got tired tossing a coin 200 times.
(Actually, it takes less time than you might think!) Anyway, for students that believe
that this tossing takes too much work, I had Minitab do the tossing for you.

In the table below, I give results of 1000 flips of a fair coin. Each row contains the outcomes of 10 flips. For the activity, you need to choose 20 of these rows --- the values of the tosses (H's and T's) get placed in the 'TOSSES' columns in the table on page 14 of the activity material.
