Casino Day at JMSS

The casino day is back again. This year’s casino day will be held Thursday April 21st.

The casino day is for Mathematics of Data Management – Students are to create and run a casino game of chance. Each student will have accurately calculated the probability of winning and losing for their game. They have calculated the expected payout per play and adjusted their prizes so that they will MAKE money!

Holding a casino day at your school gives students an ownership in their math problems. They gain real world experience as to why the theoretical probability of winning is not exactly what occurs. The casino day also shows younger students whats in store for grade 12. Our casino files are found below.
