Eleventh graders investigate binomial probabilities.  In this Algebra II lesson, 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. 
In this statistics learning exercise, 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 learning exercise.
Students use probabilities to make decisions. In this statistics lesson, students explore theoretical and experimental probability. They develop strategies for analyzing probability.
Students collect data and analyze it. In this statistics lesson, students make predictions using different outcomes of trials.
Young scholars demonstrate how to find the probability of events. In this probability lesson, students use colored tiles in a paper bag and randomly select one at a time to record the 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.
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.
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.
Students are introduced to the concept of probability, work with random number generators and
In this statistics worksheet, 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.
Students 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.
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.
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.
Students conduct simple probability experiments. For this statistics lesson, students use spinner boards to record the probability of the outcome. Students graph the outcomes of the experiment.
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. In this probability lesson, 6th graders create spinners that match specific sets of clues. Students use their spinners and worksheets to explore and predict 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.
Learners explore the concept of using consumer data and statistics to aid in the consumer decision making process. In this consumer data and statistics lesson, students research consumer data and statistics. Learners analyze the data to see if it would be useful in the consumer decision making process.
Young scholars 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.
Explore the world of sports! Search the Internet for examples of probability and statistics in professional sports. They see that knowledge of probability is useful when looking at professional sports.
