Probability: Biased Dice Independence

Students are presented with a normal six sided dice students and are asked to show that the probability of two events 'the score is odd' and 'the score is prime' are not independent. Students are then given conditions for the probabilities of the scores on a biased dice and are challenged to discover if it is now possible for the same two events to be independent.

The answer sheet provides a full explanation of the solution.
