arrangement. What is the probability of having at least one red in
Is this a fair game? How many ways are there of creating a fair game by adding odd and even numbers?
A simple spinner that is equally likely to land on Red or Black. Useful if tossing a coin, dropping it, and rummaging about on the floor have lost their appeal. Needs a modern browser; if IE then at. . . .
7 balls are shaken in a container. You win if the two blue balls
touch. What is the probability of winning?
Four cards are shuffled and placed into two piles of two. Starting with the first pile of cards - turn a card over...
You win if all your cards end up in the trays before you run out of cards in. . . .
A counter is placed in the bottom right hand corner of a grid. You
toss a coin and move the star according to the following rules: ...

Can you beat Piggy in this simple dice game? Can you figure out
Piggy's strategy, and is there a better one?
Use this animation to experiment with lotteries. Choose how many
balls to match, how many are in the carousel, and how many draws to
make at once.

in the tiling.
Match the cards of the same value.
Euler discussed whether or not it was possible to stroll around Koenigsberg crossing each of its seven bridges exactly once. Experiment with different numbers of islands and bridges.
It is possible to identify a particular card out of a pack of 15
with the use of some mathematical reasoning. What is this reasoning
and can it be applied to other numbers of cards?
