As we have been looking at probability this week, your key skills is to carry out one of the following two activities and record your findings for us to discuss next week in class.

**Activity 1**

You are going to toss a coin in the air a total of **30 **times. Every time the coin lands you are going to record whether you get a ‘**head**’ or a ‘**tail**’. Think carefully – if you are throwing it 30 times what is your denominator going to be?

Write H for ‘head’ and T for ‘tail’ in the comment box below. Can you write it as a fraction? Can you cancel any of the fractions down? (record the process e.g. 4/8 = 2/4 = 1/2)

How many times did you get a ‘head’ (H)? _______________

How many times did you get a ‘tail’ (T)? _______________

**Activity 2**

You are going to roll a dice a total of **30 **times. Every time you roll you are going to record the score on the dice. Write the score you get each time in the comment box below. Think carefully – if you are throwing it 30 times what is your denominator going to be? Can you write it as a fraction? Can you cancel any of the fractions down? (record the process e.g. 4/8 = 2/4 = 1/2)
