The Three Cube Game? Who will win?

In this activity you will use a Scratch Applet to roll three cubes many times. The object is to see if you can predict who will come up most often and win the race.
  • You should see something like the figure below. In this case the computer rolled two cubes 114 times and 9 and 12 are tied for the lead. Can you predict which number is going to win? Explain.

  • Open the Rolling Cube Microworld. Click on the green flag.
  • What happened this time?
  • Can you predict now which number will win? Why?
  • Run the race many times. See if you can determine which number or numbers have the best chance of winning.
