Description

This engaging activity will allow students to explore theoretical and experimental probability while using dice and keeping track of their data. Students will complete several trials of rolling two (or three) dice and adding their values. Students will learn about normal distribution curves (bell curves) by conducting this experiment. Use two dice for the basic experiment or three dice as a challenge (or for early finishers). The activity incorporates many skills, such as multiplying fractions, creating a line plot of data, comparing theoretical to actual results, etc. The activity can be done independently, in partners, or in small groups. Note-sheets are included to help all learners be successful.
