In this math game (Page 6 of the Are You Game? PDF), learners examine the probability of rolling sums from 0 to 12 with two dice. The first player to reach the finish line is the winner. Older learners can list all possible outcomes and the probability of each. Use this activity to explore probability, modes, and fairness.
