Math + Dice

sicherman_dice

The dice post of few weeks ago, reminded me of the Sicherman dice that Jay told me about a while ago. Sicherman dice are six-sided like our normal dice. If you roll our normal dice and add the two numbers together, some numbers occur often (7 is the most common) and some numbers occur rarely like 2. The question the Sicherman dice answers is is there anyway other way (besides our normal way) to label two dice with positive numbers and get the same frequency of 7’s, 2’s, 6’s….when we roll them. Pretty cool and you can actually buy them. Perfect for that stat-head in your life.
