Abstract
The topic of probability forms an important part of
the school mathematics curriculum. It is introduced
in middle school and is revisited in detail in senior
secondary school. Though the concepts of probability
can be taught using practical examples, these are usually
restricted to tossing of coins, rolling of dice and shuffling
playing cards. There are many interesting problems, which
can be introduced to enliven the teaching of probability and
enable students to explore the fundamental concepts.
In this article, we shall explore such a problem called The
Spaghetti Problem using the spreadsheet MS Excel.
