Math Race

Grade 2 students explored probability with the sums of two dice.

What did you do in math today?
We did a math race.
What did you do in math today?
And tell me, How does it work?

Numbers On a racing grid
We have 1 to 12.
We roll two dice, and add the numbers
Which sum will win?

Will it be 1, 7 or 12?
I think 12 will win (It’s the Biggest)
But how many ways……….to make 12?
Only 6+6

Or maybe 1, because it’s first
But how many ways to make 1?
There’s no way……. To make one
That means theres none

It must be 7,
1+6,
6+1,
2+5,
5+2,
3+4
and 4+3
That’s six ways!!!!!!!!

What did you do in math today?
I learned that some ways of winning
Are by thinking and not by luck
