'Odds or Sixes?' printed from

Show menu

You can use the computer to see what happens when Tania and Derek are playing a game with a dice. They roll the dice. If the number is odd, Tania wins that round.
If the number is a six, Derek wins.
(It doesn't matter who throws the die.)
Who is more likely to win the game? Why? How could you make the game fair?

You might like to use the interactivity below which will roll the dice many times.
