In this lesson, students examine probabilities of outcomes. Cast in a gamelike context, reasoning about probability can be stimulated by questions of fairness. Students will predict and determine the fairness of games, then learn how to make an unfair game fair. They will organize and conduct an investigation, including empirical observations and theoretical analyses.
