Statistics and Shopping
Learners explore the concept of using consumer data and statistics to aid in the consumer decision making process. In this consumer data and statistics activity, students research consumer data and statistics. Learners analyze the data to see if it would be useful in the consumer decision making process.
Probability And Sports
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.
Introduction to the Concept of Probability
Middle and high schoolers have a clarified definition of probability, they explore about outcomes in probability and how to calculate experimental probability. They use computers to learn about probability.
Probability and Sports
Students explore the concept of probability in sports. In this probability in sports instructional activity, students research a sport that they enjoy. Students find probability information related to their sport. Students share their findings with the class.
In this probability worksheet, students work with simple probability problems dealing with heads and tails, dice, and more. Students complete 9 problems.
In this probabilities instructional activity, students complete word problems having to do with probability. Students complete 6 math problems.
Probability and Statistics
For this probability and statistics worksheet, high schoolers solve independent and dependent probability problems. They identify the mean, mode and range of a set of numbers. This two-page worksheet contains five probability problems.
Probability and Sports
Learners research topics on the internet where probability is relevant. Students study statistics and probability concepts by looking at practical questions that arise in professional sports.
Probability and Statistics - Week 10
In this probability and statistics worksheet, students find compound dependent and independent probability of given situations. They identify the mean, mode, range and median of sets. This two-page worksheet contains explanations, examples and six problems.
Showing Probability and Making Predictions
In this probability and predictions activity, students complete probability questions using a given picture, then complete a set of 5 questions using data shown in a set of graphs.
Conditional Probability and Probability of Simultaneous Events
Students explore the concept of conditional probability and probability of simultaneous events. For this conditional probability and probability of simultaneous events lesson, students roll dice or use and applet to roll dice to determine probability of a particular outcome. Students try to predict the probability of members of their group winning.
Fire!, Probability, and Chaos
Students explore the concept of probability. In this probability lesson, students simulate a controlled forest burn using an applet. Students vary the probability of trees burning and predict what will happen.
Statistics with M&Ms
Seventh graders explore estimation, measurement, and probability. Students conduct surveys and create charts & graphs. They study the history of chocolate. Students design their own magazine advertisement or create a script for a commercial. Students create a candy super hero, report on being a "presidential M&M" or describe their feelings on being the new blue M&M in the bag.
Probability and Statistics
Students are taught to search the internet for statistics concepts on sports. For this probability lesson, students collect data and use the calculator to graph and analyze their data. They graph and make predictions about sports using probability.
Sampling: An Exercise in Statistics Introduction
Students use 5 articles from the Internet that have information about surveys, experiments or observational studies. They need to see which statistical terms apply. After that, they rank the 5 articles in order of credibility, and justify their ranking.
The Winning Edge: Probability in Basketball: Lesson 2
Students calculate the probability of a desired outcome based upon a statistically significant number of discrete events (i.e. endgame free-throw attempts). They participate in an online simulation of basketball free throws.
Fair or Unfair: Introduction to Probability
Third graders play various computer math games, analyzing whether the games are fair or not, and working with random number generators. They discuss everyday experiences to examine probability.
Fair or unfair: Introduction to probability
Third graders play a game with dice to learn about random number probability. In this random number probability lesson plan, 3rd graders play a racing game where they earn points and talk about their results.
Fourth graders experiment with objects to generate probable outcomes to consider probability. They convert results of experiments into graphs charts, and fractions to show outcomes after completing two activities.
Beginning Statistics Introduction Test
In this beginning statistics worksheet, students complete a six question, each with multiple part, test covering: quartiles, mean, standard deviation, categorical data, quantitative data, sampling, and probability.
