Jeremy Jones has created a brilliant website called “Stay or Switch” which allows you to play the Monty Hall Problem game show! It records your success and failure so you can use relative frequency to see the difference between staying or switching. The site goes on to provide four different explanations for why you should switch. Excellent for a computer-based lesson on probability!
