Today we talked about "Is It Fair",
because we played a game yesterday and we had to find
If it was fair. The game we played was about probability.
We had to find out if the game was fair because
there was 6/36 chance of the player to win.
So we talked in class to find out the answer for if it was
fair or not.

Next we were given a work sheet about
a probability Gumball Machine experiment.

We had to pull out cubes out of a cup.
There were 4 blue cubes, 3 yellow cubes, 2 green cubes,
and 1 red cube.
1)So first we had to think about which color would
come out more and why.
2)After we had to find out how many times the colors
would come out.
3)we had to pick out colors out of the cup, and keep track of them until we got 10.
4) You have to see how close your results was to your predictions.
5)Then we had to pick out cubes 90 times and keep track of them.
6)we had to combine the 90 and 10 rolls together.
7)Then we had to find the Percent.

For homework we had these 2 questions
1) What is experimental probability?
2) What is theoretical probability?

So for next post i choose ALWIN.T
