Is it Fair: The Single Cube Game?

In this activity you use a Scratch Applet to roll one cube many times. The object is to see if you can predict which event (1, 2, 3, 4, 5 or 6) will come up most often and win the race.
  • You should see something like the figure below. The computer rolled one cube 967 times and 5 was the winner. 

  • Open the Rolling Cube Microworld. Click on the green flag.
  • What happened this time?
  • Can you predict which number will win? Why?
  • Is this a fair game? In other words, does each outcome number have the same chance of winning? Explain.
