Center Focus

Dice Probability

  1. There will need to be enough dice at this center for each student to have their own set.
  2. Students will first need to predict what number will come up most often using two dice (from 2 to 12).
  3. They need to make a simple recording sheet where they can tally the results of 100 throws.
  4. Next they will perform the experiment by tossing the dice, adding them up, and tallying their results.
  5. Afterwards they should make a conclusion explaining the results. You may want to have questions prepared to help students with their theories.
