Probability and math

Today we played a game to reinforce the number sentences for 7 (0+1, 1+6, 2+5, 3+4). We used seven 2 sided counters (one side yellow, one side red). We then dropped the counters to see which number sentence happened the most. After many tries and using tally marks to count each time, we discovered 3+4 was the most popular. You will find a small sheet of paper in your child’s green bag with their results. Feel free to try this at home. Or try it using a different number to see which number sentence is the most popular (8= 8+0, 7+1, 6+2, 5+3, 4+4). ┬áCoins will work if you don’t have 2 sided counters.
