Last week we bought two packs of skew dice from the dice labs:

Today we decided to try a simple statistical test of the disc. Before we dove into that test, though, I asked the boys to tell me how they thought you might go about testing these dice to see how random they were.

We rolled the dice off camera. We rolled them in groups of 10 with each of us shaking up the dice in a container before each roll. After 12 rounds we had a total of 120 numbers -> here are the results:

Although we didn’t really have enough rolls to make a definitely statement about the dice, I think this was a nice way for the kids to see how a simple statistical test would work. I hope the kids are interested in playing around with these dice a bit more.
