Probability Spinner Game
- Mr. Vance
With a partner, create a game using the spinner below. You can use the numbers, the animals, or a combination. Be creative; think about using the number of feet they walk on, hair length, speed, odd or even, divisible by 4, prime, etc. Once you spin the wheel, stop it at a random section.
Assuming the arcs are each equal, are the rules of your game fair? How could you make your game fair, if it isn't? What is the probability (between 0 and 1) of landing on 1? What is the likelihood (impossible, not likely, neither likely or unlikely, likely, definite) of landing on an even number? How would you change the spinner, if you could?
