View Full Version : Looking for a a dice probability calculator.

2012-05-10, 12:07 PM
A while back on these forums I found a neat dice probability calculator - you could put in something like '4d6b3' or '2d6+7' and it would give you the percentage odds of getting each numberical result, in bar graph form. This made it very easy to use compared to most other probability calculators. It was pretty neat.

Unfortunately, I forgot to bookmark it, and I need it now. I've tried searching the forums, but came up empty-handed, and tried google searching several phrases, but while I found many probability calculators, I could not find the one I am looking for. The main reason I want this particular one is that is was very usable - it was easy to pick up and understand how it worked, and the results were readable. Now that I'm teaching some students about dice probability, I want something that they can understand easilly.

So, does anybody know which one I'm talking about, and if so where I can find it? Alternatively, does anybody know of a good, easy-to-use probability calculator that middle students can use?
