In this activity, students play a game and examine what it means for a game to be fair. The activity is part of the Figure This! collection of 80 online mathematical challenges emphasizing real world uses of mathematics. In the game's 12 rounds, two six-sided die are rolled, the face values are subtracted, and data are recorded on a table. Player A wins if the difference is 0, 1, or 2, and Player B wins when the difference is 3, 4, or 5. The page contains a solution hint, the solution, and related questions about what constitutes a fair game. Students are challenged to change the game rules to make it fair and to consider whether other common games are fair. Information about the history of dice and the variety of possible die shapes is featured. Copyright 2005 Eisenhower National Clearinghouse
