Introduce that mathematics is more about how you explain yourself than about having the correct response. First show the skit of Ma & Pa Kettle. Have the student Think Pair Share about what they saw, if they think it works - yes, come up with another example; no, come up with a counter example. Have them report back to the class what they discussed and their samples (example or counter example). Then have the class debate what Ma & Pa did that looks correct, have them discuss why it sounds right, and why it truly is wrong.
Second, show the clip on numbers. Have them reproduce the experiment and answer questions about their results. Have them share with other class members their findings and discuss the possibility that changing your first choice would truly increase your chances of wining the car.
