             Create a large spinner for a game
             that has at least eight sectors. Each
             sector should be assigned a different
             ‘prize’. Prizes should range in value
             from most appealing to least
             appealing.

             Vary the sectors so that the
             probability to win a desired prize is
             much less that the probability to win
             a lesser desired prize. Calculate the
             theoretical probability of landing on
             each prize.

             Conduct multiple trials with the
             spinner and determine the
             experimental probability of landing
             on each prize. Which price has the
             greatest probability and which prize
             has the least probability?
