MoMath Online: Student Session
Evening the Odds (Grades 7 – 12)
The probability of rolling different sums with a standard pair of dice depends upon the sum in question. This activity guides students to find ways to renumber their dice so every sum appears with the same probability. But then, what sums are possible to fit into this scheme? How many different sums can be rolled with equal likelihood? The answers to these questions and more are found in this activity.
