We used Play Your Cards Right to explore probability and chance. We discussed the chances of the next card being higher or lower than the last. This is something we could investigate further at home using playing cards.
What I liked most about this lesson was trying to guess whether the card would be higher or lower (KW).
One thing I learned is that when the chances are even, there are the same number of cards above as there are below (LR).
I was particularly interested in finding out whether I was right or wrong each time (AR).
I was surprised that we were right most of the time when we said whether we thought it would be higher or lower (HC).
