This page provides you with a number of different dice simulations to use in the classroom. You can hide the dice you don't need and use the buttons and drop-down menu to configure the required dice.

A different kind of random number generator can be found on the Maths Bingo page.

If your pupils don't have access to this page and the department's box of dice was last seen in 1976 don't despair because most scientific calculators have a random number generating facility as can be seen in the video below:

If you have any ideas for games or probability experiments please share them in the comments below.
