Description

Class Experience

In the first class, students will be introduced to dice-sum probabilities by playing a game with two dice and predicting the results of their rolls. This gives students a strong foundation for understanding the probability of dice rolls.
In the second class, students will learn how to find the average roll of one dice over a large sampling. This helps them in making decisions during game play and supporting those decisions with math. 
Finally, in the last class, students will discuss different dice combinations in Dungeons and Dragons and they will support their decision using the math they have learned.
None
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Students will be given short questions to answer regarding dice probability. By the end, students will be assessed by how they support their reasoning of which dice combination is better using the math they just learned. They will be presented with multiple scenarios and ask to conclude which dice combination is better.
2 hours 45 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
At the very least, students will need a pen/pencil and paper for this class. Access to a calculator will be helpful as well.
This class uses probability for the worlds most popular role playing game as a source of inspiration. Familiarity with the source material is helpful, but not necessary. There are free rules which the students can use to prepare for the class if they want. We will use dice simulation websites.
