Big Ideas: Compare theoretical probability to experimental probability to determine the best outcome. In this task, students try to determine the best probability of determining the winner of a horse race based on the sum of a set of dice aligned to the number of the horse. Vocabulary: Theoretical and Experimental Probability, Trials, Events, Outcome, Chance Special Materials: Dice and paper for tracking results.
