# 7 Days of Maths: MathsSandpit.co.uk #1

The new revamped Resource Of The Day is here at last! I will be featuring 7 great resources from one website over the course of 7 days. First up is mathssandpit.co.uk which is run by @Ms_Kmp

The resource I’ve picked for today is this wonderful experimental probability idea. I love it, chiefly because it uses this ridiculously awesome graph paper to record results:

For every football match, the BBC posts a handy stat that looks like the one above. You can access all the game stats of the weekend by going here, choosing a match and clicking ‘report’.

If you’re wondering why this is useful, just think about all the questions you could ask about those stats. Or students could think up their own questions.
