**After we had a chance to play, we reflected on the game.**

We noticed it was **impossible** to get a 1 because there were two dices. Even if you get a 1 on one, you still need to roll the other dice. (Delaney)

I noticed that how the mat was made, it went up to 12. Because if you have 6+6=12 it would be would be **impossible** for the number you rolled to be out of the numbers on the map. (Owin)

I noticed the same as Owin and Delaney, Matthew and me, because it was **impossible** to get 1 and it would also be impossible to get higher than 12. (Tristan)

The number that me and Stevan mostly got was 2 and 4 because we tried to roll a 6 but we did it the opposite way that the 6 was. So we didn’t get any 1s because there’s two dice and if you roll with two dices you get 1 and a 1 on both dices so you would get 2 instead of a 1. (Chloe)

**Next, we went through each dock number and tried to figure out what numbers we would need to roll to make that dock number. Here is what we found out: **

1 | Impossible |

2 | 1+1 |

3 | 1+2, 2+1 |

4 | 2+2, 3+1, 1+3 |

5 | 3+2, 4+1, 2+3, 1+4 |

6 | 3+3, 4+2, 5+1, 2+4, 1+5 |

7 | 5+2, 4+3, 2+5, 3+4, 6+1, 1+6 |

8 | 4+4, 5+3, 6+2, 2+6, 3+5 |

9 | 3+6, 4+5, 6+3, 5+4 |

10 | 5+5, 6+4, 4+6 |

11 | 6+5, 5+6 |

12 | 6+6 |

I noticed that every time it goes 1 bigger. (Delaney)

If you go on 2 you have 1 answer and so it’s like a growing and shrinking pattern. (Chloe)

**Mrs. Ho: If you were to play this game again, how might you decide where to put your boats?**

I’d put one of my boats on 7 because it has the most answers. I wouldn’t put any of my boats on 1 because you can’t get it when you roll two dices. I’d do any number higher than 1. (Stevan)

I would put mine on 8 because it’s sort of the same as Stevan’s but it’s just one down. (Armeet)

I would do all the even numbers or I would put it on two of the odd numbers like 5 and 9 because it’s **more likely** that you’re going to roll an even number because last time when me and Stevan played I mostly got even numbers. (Chloe)

I’d put four on 7 because 7 has the most. I’d put two on 8 because 7 has the most and 8 is just one less. (Owin)

I think I would put it on numbers higher than 2 or 1 because 2 it has a **chance** but it’s very hard to get it because last time when I was against I put it on 2 and that was the only one I have left to do. It was very hard to get it. (Delaney)

I’d probably not put it on 6 or 2 because it would probably be **more** **unlikely** to roll a 6 because it only has one answer. (Parker)
