Dice Probability

Today, Room 11 played a game called 'First Down the Mountain.' The children had to roll two dice and add the dots together then move that numbers counter down the mountain. They had to make predictions about which number would get down the mountain first then explain their reasoning.

We also simulated 100, 1000, and 10,000 games worth of data on the computer. We found out that it was more likely to be a small or large answer than middle one.

Here are some photos of us playing the game and gathering the data.

We used the KC's of THINKING and RELATING TO OTHERS during this activity.
