This paper examines the probabilities of outcomes from rolling dice with the dimension 1 x 1 x r for various values of r. Experiments were conducted by school students and University students. The results of the experiments are given and the probabilities examined using a generalized linear model. Notes are also made about the value of the experiment in teaching each group of students.
