Suppose you throw a double one. On the next throw, is your chance of throwing a double one the same, more likely or less likely?
On each throw, which of the following 3 options is most likely and which is least likely? How do you know?
(A) 1 and some other number
(B) A double 1
(C) Two numbers other than 1.
Can you work out a strategy so that you can win more often than you lose?
You can make your own spinner if you don’t have dice. You will need a paper clip and a pin and will need to spin the paper clip twice for each ‘throw’. Draw a regular hexagon and write in the numbers as in the diagram or use this template.
