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.
Students 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. Students analyze the data to see if it would be useful in the consumer decision making process.
Students explore the concept of probability in sports. In this probability in sports lesson plan, 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 and statistics worksheet, students 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.
Students have clarified the definition of probability, have learned about outcomes in probability, and know how to calculate experimental 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.
In this probabilities worksheet, students complete word problems having to do with probability. Students complete 6 math problems.
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.
Pupils are taught to search the internet for statistics concepts on sports. In this probability lesson plan, students collect data and use the calculator to graph and analyze their data. They graph and make predictions about sports using probability.
Students 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. Students try to predict the probability of members of their group winning.
Pupils explore the concept of probability. In this probability lesson, students simulate a controlled forest burn using an applet. Pupils vary the probability of trees burning and predict what will happen.
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 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.
Students use the sample space to make predictions and analyze data. In this statistics lesson, students apply properties of the probability of an event occurring to solve problems.
Seventh graders solve problems using and predicting the outcome. In this statistics instructional activity, 7th graders calculate th eprobability of an even occurring using combination and the fundamental counting principle. They make predictions based on their observations.
In this probability and statistics worksheet, students calculate experimental and theoretical probability in seven problems. Example and definitions are provided.
Students solve problems using a spreadsheet. In this statistics lesson, students play a probability game to see how a set a data compare to each other. They use graphs and table to represent and analyze their data.
