The Randomness PowerPoint is a good place to begin exploring the topic and helps students connect the gameplay to this concept. Be sure to preview the PowerPoint before using it, so you will know where to pause to get student input.
Slides 7 to 12 refer explicitly to RoboRiot and use visualizations from it. Slides 13 to 17 show the uncertainty in knowing when a sand Geobot will be formed.
The students’ answers to the question in slide 18, “How many extra tries will it take?” will give you a better idea about how your students are thinking about randomness.
