Students have clarified the definition of probability, have learned about outcomes in probability, and know how to calculate experimental probability
Students explore the concept of probability in sports. In this probability in sports lesson, students research a sport that they enjoy. Students find probability information related to their sport. Students share their findings with the class.
In this probabilities worksheet, students complete word problems having to do with probability. Students complete 6 math problems.
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.
Students 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.
In this probability and statistics worksheet, young scholars 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.
In this probability and statistics worksheet, young scholars 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.
Young scholars explore the concept of conditional probability and probability of simultaneous events. In 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. Young scholars try to predict the probability of members of their group winning.
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.
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.
Students are taught to search the internet for statistics concepts on sports. In 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Explore how statistics are used in everyday life. Your soon-to-be savvy consumers use the Internet to find consumer-related statistical information and learn to make wise consumer decisions. Includes links to a practice sheet about data abuse (with answers), a subsequent lesson (Intro. to Statistics), and three consumer websites for research. They participate in a challenge game in which they present consumer stats they've found online and must verify or refute each others' claims.
Students examine the plight of the unemployed. In this statistics instructional activity, students gather information regarding unemployment in the United States and brainstorm ideas to promote education to reduce unemployment.
Students discuss probability and how to analyze statistics to make a decision about the likelihood of a situation. They complete worksheets individually and then discuss their answers as a class.
