## Fair Games

Many games of chance and activities in maths text books involve rolling two dice and combining the scores, usually by addition. Students often find the probabilities of such events difficult to calculate as they are confused between events (for example a score of 4) and outcomes (for example 3 and 1, 2 and 2, 1 and 3). This unit makes use of a variety of activities where the number of outcomes in the sample space is clearly different from the number of events.

In this unit students make spinners to show the probability of events. They will make statements about probabilities shown on spinners and evaluate statements made by other classmates.
