My Giant Probability Die

Franki Game
My awesome math teacher, Ms. Mikkelson, is letting my class have a probability carnival! We can group up, and make a fun game, like spinning a wheel, and winning candy, or just rolling a die. My friends and I thought of the coolest idea; a giant 12 sided die! My dad and I always make cool things together, so I made it with him. It is made out of foam. There are 6 sides with a piranha on them, which means, you loose! There are 2 sides with question marks on them, which means we would have to ask a probability question. There is a heart, a spade, a clover, and a diamond on different sides. The heart and the diamond mean you win a piece of candy, the spade means roll again, and the clover means you can take a risk of winning 2 candies, if you lose that risk, you lose all your candy, but if you choose to not take the risk, you win one piece of candy!

 

About Franki Jo

I would say that I'm best known as “that Oshkosh girl who sings around the state.” The question I most often get is, "how old are you?" --I'm 19. While I perform at many public and private events around Wisconsin, Packers’ fans first got to know me when I sang our Anthem at Lambeau Field when I was 11. I love acting and have been doing it since I can remember. I have been cast in several films and award-winning music videos. You can find my activities here or on Facebook and Instagram. It would please me for you to attend one of my performances--invite your family! I can never have enough friends, so please register to my website and email me any time!

    I was just wondering but where did you get the foam for the huge die?

      Hi, the foam can be found in the home insulation area of your hardware store. It comes in 4×8 sheets. We bought a cheap heat knife to cut it easily. The hard part was sketching a perfect pentagon to use as a template–the pentagons have to be perfect. On youtupe you can find the secret math using a compass. We used construction glue to hold it together and covered it with cloth using spray glue and then painted the edges. It turned out so cool and was strong enough to stand on. Best, Franki
