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, 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.
