Young mathematicians define population, draw convenience sample from the population, draw quota sample from the population, and draw random probability sample from the population. They explain why a random probability sample usually gives more accurate results, explain a famous example of a convenience sample that failed, and explain a famous example of a quota sample that failed.
Future public health consultants are asked in a letter to help determine if a fictitious drug is causing birth defects in a population. They perform a simulation using beans and probability calculations to come to a conclusion. Note that the PowerPoint mentioned in day one of three is not included. You may have to do some teaching on calculating probability and the clinical study process prior to assigning this simulation and role-play activity.
Eleventh graders investigate binomial probability. In this Algebra II lesson, 11th graders conduct an experiment in which they roll a die and keep track of the number of successes and failures. Using a TI-nspire handheld, they then simulate the experiment and compare their experimental probabilities to the theoretical probabilities.
Third graders explore mathematics by participating in a board game activity. In this probability lesson, 3rd graders collaborate in teams and play the game Jumanji while utilizing statistics to analyze the probability of landing on certain squares and performing well in the game. Students discuss the probability of dice rolls and prepare a presentation for their class.
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. Video, and hands-on activities are embedded in this fine plan as well.
Students engage in a instructional activity that is concerned with the concepts related to probability. They review the key properties of statistics involved in the measurement of probability that includes mean, median, and mode. The instructional activity includes information for the teacher to use.
Ninth graders review important definitions relating to probability in the direct instruction portion of this lesson. In the guided practice section, they determine the probability of winning a coin toss using both theoretical and experimental answers. They make tree diagrams as they conduct the experiment and finally, review the vocabulary in independent student practice.
Young scholars 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. Young scholars analyze the data to see if it would be useful in the consumer decision making process.
