Having Dice Fun

To get ready to write a Craps game in Swift for the iPhone, students were playing the game with real dice and keeping track of their progress with Excel. Their goal was to see if a flowchart alone was enough information to intelligently play and understand the game.

Lesson: if you are going to write software, it's sometimes best to put a computer away and see if you can carry out the tasks (in this case game play) yourself - if you can't/don't understand the process, there's no way to get a computer to do it, no matter WHAT the language!
