We have discussed the idea of a computer model in ICT lessons, and also the idea of using Excel (or LibreOffice) to produce random numbers.
Imagine that your Maths teacher gave you some homework that was two roll two dice and add the two numbers rolled to produce a total. He or she wants you to roll the dice lots of times and count up the number of times each total comes up. Is that the sort of thing you can do with a spreadsheet? Of course it is - you did half of the task last week!
Below are two links - one is to a similar model (but for one die only) done as a web-page, the other is an Excel file containing a formula that will give you a random number from one to six.
spreadsheet with random number
You can use this spreadsheet file if you didn't do last week's task, but it would be better to use the die model you started last week.
Your task is to create a spreadsheet model that you could use to do the experiment for you. It should contain:
two random numbers from 1 - 6 to represent the two dice (and show their faces if you did last week's task)
the total of the numbers shown on the two dice
a bar chart to show how many times each total has been thrown so far
You might want to include some extra things - such as a table to show how many times each total has been thrown - if you think that will make the job easier.
