Statistical Process Control
Students brainstorm items they have that use memory and view Statistical Process Control PowerPoint presentation. They complete Statistical Process Control Simulation/experiment then find the average, range and standard deviation in their results.
Binomial Probablities ID: 10234
Eleventh graders investigate binomial probabilities. In this Algebra II instructional activity, 11th graders conduct a hand-on experiment of rolling a die and keeping track of the numbers of successes and failures. They then simulate the experiment using the TI-nspire handheld and compare experimental probability to theoretical probability.
Randomness and Probability
For this statistics worksheet, 11th graders complete word problems by analyzing data given to them. They answer the probability of an even occurring and reasons it should occur. There are 16 questions on this worksheet.
Students use probabilities to make decisions. In this statistics lesson, students explore theoretical and experimental probability. They develop strategies for analyzing probability.
Probability and Expected Value
Students collect data and analyze it. For this statistics lesson, students make predictions using different outcomes of trials.
Area of Circles and Probability
Students investigate the area of squares and circles. In this geometry instructional activity, students calculate the area and probability of simple events. They work on a laptop using Safari.
Experimental Vs. Theoretical Probability
Students explore experimental and theoretical probability. In this statistics lesson, students collect data and graph their results on a coordinate plane. They identify the line of best fit.
Students demonstrate how to find the probability of events. For this probability lesson, students use colored tiles in a paper bag and randomly select one at a time to record the probability.
Probability and Statistics: Probability of an Outcome
What is the difference between experimental and theoretical probability? Use this two-sided worksheet to give learners a simple introduction to these concepts, and a chance to practice them. Examples on the first side offer a chance to model for students during class what they will be doing at home. For practice, students answer 7 word problems using both theoretical and experimental probability.
Ideas That Lead to Probability
Learners explore and define the concept of probability. They utilize a random number generator to determine the fairness of a game. Internet and printable versions fo the activities are included.
Probability- Two Events
In this statistics instructional activity, students examine different events after translating the word problems into equations and choose which event is most likely to occur. There are 14 questions with an answer key.
Probability in Daily Life
Sixth graders examine the use of probability in daily life. In this probability lesson, 6th graders listen to scenarios from Louis Sachar's, Holes, after discussing probability in everyday life. They pretend they are detectives who are presented with a blood sample case from the book. They work in groups to complete a worksheet and present their findings to the class.
3rd Grade Probability
Third graders explore probability. In this probability lesson plan, 3rd graders work in pairs and use spinners to calculate the probability of landing on a particular color. Students record the probability results and discuss them with the class.
Games, Measurement, and Statistics
Students participate in activities in which they focus on the uses of numbers. The activities use the theme of games to develop concepts of measurement and statistics. These lessons include an individual activity for many different grade levels.
Sixth graders study the concept of probability. For this probability lesson, 6th graders create spinners that match specific sets of clues. Students use their spinners and worksheets to explore and predict probability.
M&M Graphing and Probability
Fifth graders count, sort, and classify M&M's by color. They use their data to create a pictograph, bar graph, circle graph, and in small groups analyze the data and create a graph on a math website. They also determine the ratio of each color of M&M's to the entire bag and predict the probability of selecting one color at random from a large bag.
Is This Really Okay for Me? A Public Health Statistical Analysis
Future public health consultants are asked in a letter to help determine if a fictitious drug is causing birth defects in a population. They perform a simulation using beans and probability calculations to come to a conclusion. Note that the PowerPoint mentioned in day one of three is not included. You may have to do some teaching on calculating probability and the clinical study process prior to assigning this simulation and role-play activity.
Students engage in a lesson that is concerned with the concepts related to probability. They review the key properties of statistics involved in the measurement of probability that includes mean, median, and mode. The lesson includes information for the teacher to use.
NUMB3RS Activity: All in the Family
Learners explore probability. In this secondary mathematics lesson, students examine genetic problems caused by inbreeding. Learners calculate the probability that a child will receive the same allele from the grandfather through both the mother and the father.
Pupils engage in a hands-on math activity where they calculate probability, graph the results, and interpret the results of their experiments. They design probability problems using manipulatives and solve the problem in a written format.
