The Two Cube Game

In this activity you will use a Scratch Applet to roll two cubes many times. The object is to see if you can predict which number 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 111 times and 8 is in 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? Explain.
  • Is this a fair game? In other words, does each number have the same chance of winning? Explain.
Note: Read Marilyn Burn's blog about a 2 dice rolling game she came up with.
