Today, in class, we played a game and I think it was called 'Is This Fair?' It didn't exactly have a title. Anyway, before playing we had to read the rules and have an answer to the question 'is this game fair?'


How you play is there's a PLAYER and an OPPONENT. They both have 10 points. There's a pair of dice. That's 2 of them.


The player is the only one that can use the dice. According to Mr. Harbeck, the opponent just smiles and records the scores.



You roll the dice 10 times.

If the PLAYER happens to roll a 7, the PLAYER gets 3 of the OPPONENT's points.

If the PLAYER rolls anything else, the OPPONENT gets 1 point from the PLAYER.

We were supposed to do this game 10 times and see who had the most wins.


--We were called to Bus Ridership--


After the bus ridership, we were asked:


Who won most? Why?
Think probability.
We were asked a second time, is this game fair?

We're supposed to write the answer in our "handy-dandy" notebooks... I think. Either there or on the back of the paper of the game.


I choose Kristin to do the scribe tomorrow!

I like how you explained the game. Nice first scribe post. You could include some images of the game or tally sheets to explain the results.

Thanks for blogging
