Middle schoolers write a probability fraction based on the number of favorable outcomes and the number of total outcomes. In this math lesson, learners come up with their fractions based on a bag of candy that has six Three Musketeers, eight Milky Ways and ten Nestle's Crunch.
Young scholars estimate and then count the number of each color of M&M's in their bag. For this mathematics lesson, students find the experimental probability of selecting each color from the bag. Young scholars create pictographs and bar graphs of the colors of candy pieces in their bag. Students use information from the Mars, Inc. website to compute theoretical probability of each color appearing in the bags.
Seventh graders investigate the concepts related to theoretical and experimental probability while describing the similarities or differences. They practice solving different problems and make predictions about future outcomes and then summarize the findings using a visual graph.
Interpreting and analyzing the information found in newspapers, magazines, and graphical displays can be a great way to understand statistical data. Learners interpret statistical information, describe in words what a graph means, and also read the data contained in the graph. They read various types of graphs and interpret the data.
