Young scholars investigate probability. They will define probability as the likelihood of an event occurring. Then, they determine the probability of sitting in a particular seat on a plane. They also set up ratios of various seating scenarios on the airplane, such as the likelihood of sitting in row 7 out of 30 rows.

Playing with Probability
Review basic probability concepts with your class using different-colored marbles in a bag. Then pair up learners and have them play a cool online interactive game in which they race miniature cars using the roll of a die or two. The class compiles all of their results to discuss, and they extrapolate what might occur if the game is repeated 10,000 times!

Buttons: Statistical Questions
Here is a nice activity about recognizing the difference between a statistical question and answer and one that anticipates a fixed answer. From this, your future statisticians will develop an understanding of variability and be able to write their own statistical questions.

Home Runs, Statistics, and Probability
Baseball and statistics go hand-in-hand and knowing how to interpret, compare, and display this information is a key skill for any middle schooler. Using two sets of data, have young statisticians answer questions by constructing and comparing different representations of the data especially lineplots (dotplots), stemplots (including back-to-back stemplots) five number summaries, and boxplots.

The Law of Large Numbers and Probability
Learners investigate why theoretical probability doesn't always match reality. The activity involves using Python 2.7 (or Sage) to set up a Bernoulli Trial. It also involves setting up a spreadsheet to simulate the Birthday Paradox. Pupils should be familiar with Python, fractional exponents, and combinations before beginning.

Probability for the Novice
The comprehensive, overall purpose in teaching probability is to help students draw conclusions about the characteristics of a large group given a small sample taken from the group. Probability is related to predicting the chance of a certain event taking place, or failing to take place.
