In this lesson you will find two probability games: The Addition and Multiplication Game. Each game is played with partners and dice. It's a great way for students to find experimental and theoretical probability and discuss the fairness of games.

The Addition Game

by Annie Lowe
In this game, students will roll a set of dice a total of 36 times. Player A gets 1 point if the sum is odd, Player B gets 1 point if the sum is even. The player with the most points at the end of the game wins. Do you think this is fair? Play to find out.

The rules are the same in this game as in the Addition Game, only this time instead of the sum the students are getting the product of the two dice.

The questions here ask the students to compute what the experimental and theoretical probability are and whether or not they thought the game was fair. It also brings up some different rules that other students have played by and they must respond whether they think those rules are fair or not and why.

In this review students will answer questions based on the vocabulary they have learned so far in their probability unit.

Students will answer questions based on experimental probability as well as answer a question about who will win a game based on data that is given.
