Learning about Probability and Luck with Coins and Dice
Our Morning Meeting Activity was to understand the ratio that is created when using dice or coins. Here Hawk and Jorja start their T Chart.
         The kids were paired with their Job Partner for this week and together, they each made a prediction about how many times their coin would land on heads and their die would land on the number 3. Each student threw their game piece 10 times. They kept count on the whiteboards.
When everyone had finished, we talked about how it seems easier to guess correctly when there is a 1:2 chance over a 1:6 chance.  They figured out that the more sides mean that the probability goes down.
Yes, we all love thinking we have lots of luck!! For sure, I have been lucky to have these kids this year!
