Elementary Reading and Math Software Secondary Maths - introducing probability Asking a question ‘What is the probability of rolling two fair dice and obtaining two sixes’ can generate all kinds of misconceptions and incorrect answers; this question reflects the underlying challenges associated with teaching probability theory effectively. I first observed the brilliance of ZILCH attending a Masterclass for Gifted and Talented pupils based at Bath University. A unique feature of the game is the ability to generate interest and enthusiasm across the age and attainment range; a top set year 7 group can be just as engaged as a foundation year 10 group. The game is played using packs of six dice and ideally the game is played in pairs. A scoring system is clearly explained as follows: Each player rolls one dice and the highest score takes the first turn. Three fours together score 400 and the player decides to roll the three non scoring dice again with the hope of improving a score of 400 points. Chris Curtis Curriculum Team Leader for Mathematics
