Solving the Unknown with Algebra: Lesson 3: Functions and Formulas/Square Roots
This lesson has a number of fun worksheets for a pre-algebra or beginning algebra class. The main emphasis of this lesson is functions, formulas, and looking at square roots. It is the third lesson in a series on solving for unknowns, which you can find if you look first at the "Getting Started" link.

Quarter, Nickel, Dime....
An engaging game called, "Quarter, Nickel, and Dime" is presented in this math lesson. Players are given an envelope with slips of paper that represent the three coins. In pairs, they play the game 18 times, and the whole class charts their results on a class graph that leads to an exciting discussion on probability.

Probability- Based Bingo Lesson Plan
Statisticians play a game of Bingo to discover the meaning of probability. They are given 12 markers to distribute across the numbers 1-12 on their playing mat. As a pair of dice is rolled, markers are removed from the playing mat. The first person to clear their mat is the winner.

Using R & R to Teach Mathematics
Read G is for Googol: A Math Alphabet to explore probability. Young scholars read the story then participate in several probability experiments such as coin flipping and dice rolling. They create charts for these activities and analyze the probabilities of certain events by viewing the data in the charts.

Poverty within Our Community
Use statistical data to identify and explain poverty. Middle schoolers give and implement possible solutions to poverty. They read statistics concerning poverty and create graphs and charts to illustrate what they have read. A great way to integrate math and social studies.

Countdown Challenge: Experimental Probability
In this probability learning exercise, students compute the experimental probability of an event from given data. They give answers in fraction, decimal and percent form. Students compare the theoretical probability to the experimental probability.
7th - 8th Math
Learners analyze ACC basketball statistics. In this statistics lesson plan, students convert data collected in to decimals and fractions. They create a spreadsheet using their data and convert their answers to percent. This lesson plan is done during basketball season.

An Introduction to Mathematica and the "Birthday Problem"
Twelfth graders determine the probability of two people in their class sharing the same birthday. In this determining the probability of two people in their class sharing the same birthday problem lesson plan, 12th graders use Mathematica to simulate the birthday problem.
Exploring the Birthday Paradox Using a Monte Carlo Simulation and Graphing Calculators
Students understand and apply basic concepts of probability, use simulations to generate and explore data, develop an understanding of permutations as a counting technique and use varied representations to model and interpret mathematical phenomena.
8th - Higher Ed Math
Shaken Not Stirred
Students engage in a lesson that is about finding the statistical value of a problem that is posed. They must read carefully through the entire problem and use notetaking skills in order to take down all the details. Then students use inductive reasoning to solve the problem with statistics.
9th - 12th Math
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.
