Hi MIF;

Could you please tell me in which language you programmed the quincunx?

If you do not mind, may I use the animation and your pictures in my mathematics project?

Thanks for the information. Do you know of any other open source language which is suitable for making this animation?

Hi,

See http://rosettacode.org/wiki/Galton_box_animation.

For realistic animations, you may need to use something like blender. E.g.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pwBG9uGscQs

Yes you may (just give credit as I am sure you would but I still have to say it).

What is the project about?

"What is the square root of 2? 1.4141592653589793238" Seriously, I thought it was that. Too round?
