Fifth Class : Maths Probability Challenges

5th class doing some Maths Week Probability Challenges in maths. The children used tally sheets to record how often they threw numbers with dice. Then they recorded the results when they threw two dice. The most frequent answer was 7. We think this is because we had more ways to make 7. The least frequent was 1. Do you know why?
