Product Description
In this probability experiment, students are asked to consider the fairness of a six-sided dot die. They roll the die 36 times and see if they observe each result six times, as theoretical probability tells them they should.

This five-page document includes a 3-page experiment packet and an answer key. Students:
-List the possible outcomes and the probability of each
-Assess fairness and theoretical probability
-Roll the die 36 times and record results
-Analyze their results

Students will need a pencil and a six-sided dot die to complete this activity. (Some of my students were familiar with the 12-sided and 4-sided dice used in Dungeons & Dragons and similar tabletop games!) Virtual dice are available at http://www.random.org/dice/ and would work for this activity. (Provided, of course, that your school has the appropriate technology!)

Thanks for looking! I hope you find this useful.
