Kids are less familiar with board games these days. As a result, they need extra practice solving dice problems when learning about probability. They simply are not as familiar with dice (number cubes) as they once might have been.
This activity consists of two worksheets (A and B).
- The first worksheet includes a chart for students to complete representing the thirty-six outcomes that are possible when rolling a pair of dice. Fifteen probability questions then require students to examine the chart in order to calculate various probabilities.
- The second worksheet is a ten question review. You may have students refer back to the chart on worksheet A or construct their own chart as a follow-up to completing the introductory activity.
Here are some other probability resources to combine with this one:
- Simple Probability Practice
- Independent & Dependent Probability Color by Number
- Independent & Dependent Probability Puzzle
