What Are The Odds?
What are your chances of winning the lottery? Or getting an A on an exam you didn't study for? Or even finding that missing sock? How about a game of ‘Probnopoly'. ‘What are the Odds?' is 1,000 square feet of exhibits and programming that gives a crash course on probability, gambling and the difference between luck and skill.
Eight interactive exhibits take you through the simplicity of 50/50 chance, to one in four, through varying probabilities, a normal distribution, winning a lottery and understanding chance and skill. Each exhibit stands alone but also builds on the information from the last exhibit.
The critically acclaimed pre, during and post activity sheets for school children, helping to reinforce the concepts and ideas developed in the exhibit.
