In this using probability to solve word problems instructional activity, students use statistics, averages, and even numbers, to problem solve. Students solve six problems.
Students collect data and determine the mean.  In this probability lesson, students play a game and collect information on the various moves.  From the collected information, they determine the probability of winning the game.  Students modify the rules to create a different game, collect statistical information, and compute the average number of turns needed to win the game.
This unit encourages students to assess the validity of a set of statements and then plan and carry out investigations to find out whether the statements are true. Students then carry out statistical investigations of their own.
Seventh graders investigate the concept of probability. They use the game of hangman to create engagement and context for conducting the lesson plan. They create a spreadsheet with data that is given. Students make predictions based on data.
Probability prevails in this assignment as youngsters determine the probability of finding a blue pen in a cereal box when they can come in blue, green, yellow, or red. Learners set up a simulation to determine the outcome of compound events.
In this statistical process control worksheet, students solve and complete 15 various types of problems. First, they estimate the standard deviation of the given process. Then, students use the target value as a center line and draw a control chart that plots the means. They also, determine the probability of an occurring process on target.
Sixth graders examine probability. In this probability lesson plan, 6th graders go to the Shodor website, gather data from the spinner for 20 spins and chart the outcomes. Students write the outcomes in fractions, decimals, and percents. Students discuss their outcomes and what would make them different.
Students collect data by conducting a survey of fellow classmates. They investigate the relationship between estimates obtained from samples and theoretical probabilities. Answer keys included.
In this probability and statistics learning exercise, students complete a set of 10 multiple choice questions, clicking on an answer link to view correct answers.
In this probability learning exercise, students explain how probability is a part of everyday life by discussing six different scenarios. Afterwards, they draw a picture of probability in their life. This one-page learning exercise contains a total of seven problems.
In this probability worksheet, students determine the probability of dependent events. They provide answers in fractions. This one-page worksheet contains 26 problems.
For this probability worksheet, students observe 40 pictures of assorted bears. They determine the simple probability of picking a bear with given characteristics. This one-page worksheet contains ten problems.
In this continuous probability distribution worksheet, students identify discrete and continuous distributions. They calculate the linear combination of the independent normal random variable and determine probabilities using exponential distribution. This 20 page worksheet contains approximately 100 problems. Explanations and examples are provided throughout the document.
Learners examine the relationship between probability and geometry to solve problems. In this geometry and probability lesson, students investigate the effect of changing percentages on a spinner to the probability of landing on a particular space on the spinner.
In this probability worksheet, students solve and complete 16 various types of problems related to statistics. First, they determine the probability of the statistics that are true as shown. Then, students find the conditional probabilities for each statement given.
Students practice calculating probability, see how geometry can help solve probability problems and explore platonic solids.
In this statistics and probability learning exercise, young statisticians solve and complete 13 different problems related to probability, percentages, and normal distributions. They consider data models, assumptions about the models, and find probabilities based on models. 
Students investigate the probability of an event occurring. In this statistics lesson plan, students define statistics, sample and population to be able to solve the problems. They review the rules of summation and different sampling techniques.
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.They need to be steered away from guessing outcomes. Experimenting should allow them to approach fairly accurate results.
Students explore experimental and theoretical probability. In this statistics lesson plan, students collect data and graph their results on a coordinate plane. They identify the line of best fit.
