## Let's Play!!!!

Let's play a game. There are 2 red blocks and 3 blue blocks. (Or use any color/number of blocks you want!) We take turns picking blocks. If both of the blocks are the same color, I win. If the blocks are different colors, you win.

##### Question 1

What are all the possible outcomes?

##### Discussion Question

Do you think this game is fair? Explain.

There are two versions of this game.

- After you pick the first block, you put it back before you choose the second block.
- After you pick the first block, you DON’T put it back before you choose the second block.

##### Discussion Question

Does this make a difference? Explain.

#### Activity:

##### Materials

- Paper bag with 2 red blocks and 3 blue blocks
- Recording sheet:

##### Instructions

Play 10 to 50 rounds (Or more!) of the game for each version. Together, calculate the experimental probability.

##### Discussion Questions

Compare the two versions.

- Is the game fair? If not, who has a better chance of winning?
- Which version of the game would you prefer to play?

##### Extension

Calculate the theoretical probability and compare the theoretical probability with the experimental probabilities that were calculated.
