Estimating Pi by Throwing Darts

You can throw a collection of randomly-generated darts at a target. Some hit, some miss. We can use this to estimate Pi. Recommendation: Double-click the geogebra window to open separately. You may then simply use F9 to regenerate a new set of darts. When double-clicked, you can explore the construction to justify the calculation.
