Every statistics teacher I know of starts explaining probability by using the classic coin example: heads or tails. However, I come from Indonesia, which has neither faces on our coins. Where I’m studying at (Hong Kong) does not use the head-tail coin, either (except, of course, the British coins that still circulates the market). Even so, every single teacher would dwell on the case of heads vs tails, even though most students only know of those from being exposed to the same foreign culture.
Doesn’t that say a lot about the examples and advice people give out to each other?
