Write the total of combinations as shown in the dice diagram. Write the number of ways that each total could be tossed, out of the 36 ways. Which total would have the most/ least chance of being tossed? Match the totals that have the same chance of being tossed. Analyse dice game. Write the total easiest/ hardest to toss. Predict the game board likely to be covered first. Order the boards and test predictions by playing.
6:SP15 Describing the chances
Describe the chances of winning the dice game, or of obtaining the totals given.
