##### Stage: 2 Challenge Level:
This problem is designed for you to work on in a group of about four.

You will need a set of these cards for your group. Each card has a statement on it. These are the six statements:

$6$ is the hardest number to throw on a dice.
A game is fair if you play it properly.
I will see someone I know on the way home from school.
It always rains in the summer holidays.
If you buy lots of raffle tickets, you're sure to win a prize.
It's easier to get heads than tails when you flip a coin.

The idea is for you to decide, as a group, whether you agree or disagree with each statement. Talk together about what you think and once you have made a decision, make a note of the reasons for your choice.

If possible, discuss your group's reasons with the rest of the class.
