Seventh graders solve and complete 2 different problems that include a number of other possibilities. First, they draw a marble as stated for each out of a sack of marbles and determine the probability of getting that particular marble. Then, they find the probability for each listed outcome for a spinner shown.
Sticks and Stones: Probability
Students collect data and determine the mean. In this probability lesson plan, 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.
3rd - 8th Math
Chances Are......You're Right
Young mathematicians study probability. In this math lesson, learners calculate odds, and convert those into percentages of probability. Fractions are also used, making this lesson quite rich in some of the more difficult conversions that pupils must make.
5th - 6th Math
Check out this thematic unit, based on the game of baseball. Learners investigate numbers and number relations as they become familiar with some of the basic terminology associated with the game. They focus their attention on actual statistical data and how it is used to determine the overall rating of a player's past performance.
6th - 8th Math
Sixth graders examine probability. In this probability lesson, 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.
Conditional Probability and Probability of Simultaneous Events
Students explore the concept of conditional probability and probability of simultaneous events. In this conditional probability and probability of simultaneous events instructional activity, students roll dice or use and applet to roll dice to determine probability of a particular outcome.
