Take turns and roll a six-sided die 50 times altogether. Each time one of a person's two rolls appears they score a point (regardless of who rolls the die). Keep track of each person's score on a data table. When you finish, make a bar chart of your results.
Make sure that you don't lose your scores, we will be using the again and again throughout these lessons. If you lose them, you will have to take the time to roll them all again and everyone will yell at you for wasting their time. You will become an outcast and the heavens will rain fire upon you... or something.
Here is a sample set of scores for students one, two, three and four:
In this sample set, there is no mode. There is no score that occurs the most often. Would it be just as correct to say that all the scores are modes?
Now, continue to another example.
