Using digital vignettes from HudsonAlpha's video Focus on Cancer, beads, and dice, this unique demonstration of chance and randomization lets students simulate the fate of a population of cells across multiple cell divisions. It illustrates how a population of cells becomes more varied over time, and how those changes may lead a group of cells to become more cancerous.
