Of Dice and Men

This witty short animation film introduces the theory of probability. We learn of its inception in the 17th century to settle a dispute over a game of dice, its relationship to predictability, and its application to everyday situations--like the chances of being involved in an accident.

  • “Excellent. This film encapsulated a 4 part series I saw (probably PBS) called The Code which similarily described probability, patterns, randomness, etc. What a reflection on Canada's health care system and our abundance of casinos.” — cbarzo@telus.net, 2 Feb 2012
