A mathematics investigation involving chance and data, embedded in a real-world context.

This open-ended mathematics investigation has been designed to deepen students’ understanding of chance, data collection and data representation.

In this investigation, the students must conduct a comprehensive chance experiment to test the following statement:

If you whisper Roll me a six! to a dice before rolling it, you have a higher chance of getting a six.

The students must collect data by rolling a dice 20 times, whispering Roll me a six! before each roll. They must then roll the dice 20 more times without whispering. The students must present and compare their data using frequency tables and a side-by-side column graph.

This teaching resource includes:

• teacher notes, detailing a range of important information about the investigation
• a detailed description of the investigation for students, including step-by-step instructions
• various recording worksheets
• reflection questions.
