Monty Hall Problem

Learning Objectives
  1. Know whether or not to switch in the Monty Hall problem

This demonstration lets you play the Monty Hall game. In the Monty Hall game, a contestant is shown three doors. Two of the doors have goats behind them and one has a car. The contestant chooses a door. Before opening the chosen door, Monty Hall opens a door that has a goat behind it. The contestant can then switch to the other unopened door, or stay with the original choice. In this demonstration, you begin by clicking on a door. A different door showing a goat will then appear. You then either click your original door again or switch to a different door. You will see whether you win a car or a goat. Your cumulative results will be shown.

Illustrated Instructions
When running the simulation, select the number of doors and click "OK."
