Homework Answer on The Toss on the Four Seasons
The four seasons occur separately and some places do not experience all the four seasons; they have one dominant season, especially summer. Others have all the four seasons: autumn, winter, spring and summer. Knowing the characteristics and timing of each season helps us cope with their effects. Our schedules and projects are dependent on these seasons, especially where the four seasons occur. Those having one predominant season experience less of these effects and can plan out their schedules and projects irrespective of them.
However, nature is dynamic and cannot be accurately predicted. We depend on its effects/signs to know the start of a given season.The game, a toss across matching, is much like the seasons, it is independent and the players (1st graders) are dependent on the results (symbol chosen) to be able to act (matching them to the shower curtain board). To get the desired results, several tosses have to be made with the probability of getting the matching symbol increasing with the number of tosses.
It can be said it is dependent on luck to get consecutive matching symbols, but it is the actual timing and planning that could have contributed.The game helps us understand the dynamics of the four seasons, for example, their arrangement and characteristics of each. The signs coupled to season like summer are different from those coupled to winter. Summer season is synonymous with clear skies and sunny days while the winter season is devoid of such effects and is dominated with cold sessions and rainy streaks.
