In this lesson we explore the probability of different sums appearing when two dice are rolled. We then look at how we could renumber 4 sided (tetrahedral) and 6 sided dice so that the probability of getting the same sums is equal. Last, we examine how we can use polynomials to renumber the six sided dice.
