The Galton Board with Pascal's Triangle is a probability demonstrator providing a visualization of math in motion and the powers of the probabilities and statistics. With the addition of the Stock Market Clip-ons, the board illustrates the randomness and the probabilities of various market returns.

The Galton Board displays centuries old mathematical concepts in an innovative, dynamic desktop device. It incorporates Sir Francis Galton's (1822-1911) invention from 1873 that illustrated the binomial distribution, which for a large number of rows of hexagons and a large number of beads approximates the normal distribution, a concept known as the Central Limit Theorem. He was fascinated with the order of the bell curve that emerges from the apparent chaos of beads bouncing off of pegs in his board. According to the Central Limit Theorem, more specifically, the de Moivre (1667-1754) - Laplace (1749-1827) theorem, the normal distribution may be used as an approximation to the binomial distribution under certain conditions.

When rotated on its axis, the 6,000 steel beads and one large golden bead cascade through 14 rows of symmetrically placed hexagons in the Galton Board. When the device is level, beads bounce off of the 105 hexagons with equal probability of moving to the left or right. As the beads settle into one of the 15 bins at the bottom of the board, they accumulate to create a bell-shaped histogram.
