# Activity - Flipping a coin and a dice

- Estimated Time :30 min

- Materials/ Resources needed :coin,dice,paper,pencil

- Prerequisites/Instructions :Tell the students to note down all the possible outcomes when they flip the coin and the dice

## Multimedia resources

## Website interactives/ links/ simulations/ Geogebra Applets

## Process (How to do the activity)

- Every student must have a coin,dice,paper and pencil with him
- Tell the students to flip the coin and record the possible outcomes
- Now ask the students to flip the dice and record all the possible outcomes
- After noting down the possible outcomes in separate events now tell the students to flip both the coin and dice at a time and record the all possible outcomes

## Developmental Questions (What discussion questions)

- How many outcomes you got when you flip a coin and what are those?
- How many outcomes you got when you flip a dice and what are those?
- Now can you tell me the two different events occurred here?
- Can we flip both the coin and dice in a single event?
- How many outcomes did you get when you flipped both coin and dice at a time?

## Evaluation (Questions for assessment of the child)

- How many possible outcome you get when you flip a coin and a dice?
- Draw the tree diagram for the total outcomes.

## Question Corner

- If one event can be done in 5 ways another in 4 ways then in how many different ways both events can be done
- If three different events occur in 'm','n'and 'p' ways respectively then in how many ways can they be occur combindly
