Deborah R. Fowler - Galton Board
The idea of a Galton board is to demonstrate the bell curve. Dropping balls on pegs arranged in a way such that when the ball is dropped it has a 50/50 chance of going left or right. Generally speaking there are more paths going toward the middle and thus produces the bell curve, or binomial distribution, or normal distribution of balls in the slots below the pegs.
