6th Class – Chance

This week we have been looking at the topic of ‘chance’ in Room 15. The boys took part in a variety of experiments, including the rolling of dice, and the picking of coloured cubes from a bag. We analysed the findings, including a look at the amount of odd/even numbers rolled, the most common number rolled, and how the results corresponded with our predictions before the experiment and what we felt ‘should’ happen. We created graphs to represent our results, and discussed how probability works.
