In this sequence of two lessons, students determine their chances of winning the game 'rock paper scissors', then test their chances by playing against another player and in a simulated game. Students look at the psychological aspect of the game and recognise that there is a strategy to increase your chance of winning. They then extend this to more complex versions of the game and calculate the probabilities of winning in the new context. Each lesson is outlined in detail including curriculum links, vocabulary, materials needed, card templates, student recording sheets, discussion points and explanatory slide shows. This sequence is part of the reSolve: Maths by Inquiry program.
