This panel has been put together to promote the use of simulation as a teaching tool to expedite the learning and, more importantly, the understanding of probability theory. "In a nutshell," the thesis upon which this panel is based is that the simulation approach is more effective than a mathematical approach on a stand-alone basis. It also dominates any statistical approach as a pedagogical tool.
