The chance and strategy unit problem was to find a strategy for the game Pig that gives you the most points in the long run. The game of pig is where you roll a die for however many rolls as you want to. Each number you roll gets added to your score, the person with the highest score wins. However if you roll a one, then all the points you won that turn are lost.

Probability is any fraction or percent going from 0 to 1. There are two types of probability; theoretical probability is the probability of what should happen. The theoretical probability of getting heads when flipping a coin is ½. The other kind of probability is observed probability. This is when you take the probability of something from the results that you have gotten doing this thing. Such as if you flipped a coin 8 times and got 6 heads, the probability would be ¾. This form will be more accurate over time as the results level out.

Because of observed probability people often fall into the belief know as the Gamblers Fallacy. This when you have a string of events that lead you to believe that something different has a higher probability of happening because it hans’t happened in a while. However past events will not affect the current probability of something happening. Such as rolling a die. If you roll a bunch of sixes that doesn’t raise your probability of getting a five.

Strategy

A strategy is a set of rules or actions that you use to achieve a certain goal. Most board games are based off of strategies. If you have a good strategy that can be adapted to fit different situations, then you become a master of that game. In this Unit we will be focusing on a Strategy for the game Pig.

The best strategy that I have found so far in Pig is to keep on rolling until you get at least twenty points. I decided to go to twenty so if you do get a 1, you don’t actually loose that many points. If you keep getting a bunch of sets in the...

POW Write-up
In this POW write-up, I am trying to prove that there can be only one solution to this problem, and demonstrate and corroborate that all solutions work and are credible. What the problem of the week is asking is that the number that you put in the boxes 0-4 is the number of numbers in the whole 5-digit number. For example, if you put zero in the “one” box, you would be indicating that there is zero ones in the number....

...1. To find my conclusions I had to think about each part of the problem. When you know that one thing means you go on to the next part. When you figure out what that means you have to see how the two statements are related. If they are related then you can deduce a conclusion that makes sense.
2. Here are my conclusions for the 6 problems on page 7.
1. a. No medicine is nice
b. Senna is a medicine
Here I deduced that Senna is not a nice...

...to determine how many squares we can
find altogether. By doing this problem of the week we will be able to find shapes of
any checkerboard that is given. We have to find multiple ways to a 7-by-7, 6-by-6, 5-by-5,
4-by-4, 3-by-3, 2-by-2, and 1-by-1.
So it is saying that, how many squares I can make in an 8-by-8 checkerboard?
The things I checked and figured out that are wrong is that I tried to do as much squares as
Possible but I always had less...

...“A Sticky Gum Problem” POW 4
Problem statement:
The next scenario is very similar. In this one, Ms. Hernandez passed a different gumball machine the next day with three different colors Once again her twins each want a gumball of the same color, and each gumball is still one cent. What is the most amount of money that Ms. Hernandez would have to spend in order to get each of her daughters the same color gumball?
In the last scenario, Mr. Hodges and his triplets pass...

...Mega POW
A very wealthy king has 8 bags of gold, which he trusts to some of his caretakers. All the bags have equal weight and contain the same amount of gold, all the gold in the kingdom. Although, the king heard a story that a woman received a gold coin. The king knew it had to be his gold so he wanted to find the lightest bag in the 3 weighing, but the mathematician thought it could be done in less, so I need to find out the least amount of weighing it takes to find the...

...This unit's main goal was to use similar triangles to measure the length of a shadow. While using the variables D, H, and L, we have figured out a formula to measure a shadow's length. In order to do this though, everyone had to learn the basic concepts of similarity, congruence, right triangles, and trigonometry.
Similarity and congruence were two very important factors because they helped us learn about angles and the importance of triangles. Similarity was a key to find out how to use...
