Learning About Random Variables with Dice

Partners roll a pair of dice repeatedly to explore basic concepts of probability. They gather data about 36 rolls (order and sum) and ponder whether each roll is independent. The whole class convenes to share data and calculate probabilities. At higher grade levels, they encounter random variables and the probability density function. Student instructions are provided.
