A few weeks ago my colleague, Linda Martin, who blogs for other advanced academic resource teachers wrote about issuing a challenge to her students to create dice that would always roll a win.
I work with a group of 7 fourth graders and decided to issue this challenge to them as an optional activity. Only one took up the challenge and this is what he brought me the following week.
When I asked him to explain his choices he said that “7” and “11” are THE winning numbers so one die has all 5’s and the other has 3 2’s and 3 6’s so you would always roll either a 7 or an 11. Clever young man!
