Imagine a school assembly with 250 students. Everyone stands up and flips a coin. People with tails sit down. People with heads flip again. Do you think anyone will get 6 heads in a row? How many heads in a row do you expect the last one standing to have flipped? Can you explain your reasoning? Here is an animation for you to explore what happens when different sizes of assembly gather and carry out the experiment.
