Can I get a popsicle please?

Act One

  • 1.

    What is the prize?

Act Two

  • 2.

    How could you investigate this? What could you use other than buying the popsicles (ice blocks or ice lollies) in test possibilities?

  • Teacher note
    Create some u-w-i-n cards...Or ask students to consider how they might use sets of counters or decks of cards. Build up some group graphs and a class graph of the outcomes.


  • 3.

    How well did what you do to "simulate" reality match it? Explain.

  • 4.

    How can you change things in order to make it a little harder (or even a lot harder) to win?
