Product Description
This is a great activity that helps the students understand standard deviation! With a partner, the students will roll 3 dice to create a set of 10 test scores. The total amount of points that can be earned on a test is 18. Each partner will take turns rolling all 3 dice AT ONCE to create a set of test scores. They must add up all the numbers they roll. For example, one partner rolls a 3, 5, and 2, which equals 10 out of 18. Record your results of each roll, on the given chart. Each pair will record 10 test scores, allowing each partner to roll the dice 5 times. After all the test scores are recorded, find the mean, standard deviation, MAD, and variance of the 10 TOTAL test scores found.
