Statistics and Shopping
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.
Pupils 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.
Eleventh graders investigate binomial probability. In this Algebra II instructional activity, 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.
In this probability worksheet, learners complete probability word problems based on charts and graphs. Students complete 25 word problems.
Algebra Two Probability
In this probability worksheet, students complete word problems about different probabilities. Students complete 28 word problems about probability.
Data Analysis, Probability, and Discrete Mathematics: Lesson 4
Eighth graders investigate the concepts of probability while performing data analysis. They apply statistical methods in order to measure or predict some possible outcomes. The information is collected and graphed, 8th graders analyze the results.
Fire!, Probability, and Chaos
Upper elementary and middle schoolers work with the concept of probability. They are introduced to the concept of chaos. Learners graph and analyze using a line plot, work with mean, and are introduced to the concept of variance.
Sixth graders explore the math concept of probability. In this probability lesson, 6th graders examine visual examples of finding probability. Students also practice solving problems that their instructors model.
Sample Space and Probability Distribution
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.
Experimental and Theoretical Probability
Students explore the principles of probability for simple and compound chance events. They record experiment results and present their outcomes through tables, tree diagrams, and tally sheets. They compare, interpret, and support the use of mean, median, mode, and range and display their results in a graph. They identify uses and misuses of probability theory in the everyday world.
If .... Then Probably
Students are introduced to the concepts of probability and chance. Using data given to them, they organize and create a chart to display the information. Using this chart, they calculate the percentage of chance and probability and share their results with the class.
Probability, Combinations, and the Fundamental Counting Principle
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.
Introduction to Theoretical and Experimental Probability
In this probability and statistics worksheet, students calculate experimental and theoretical probability in seven problems. Example and definitions are provided.
Students differentiate between theoretical and experimental probability. In this probability lesson plan, students create a puzzle and calculate the probability of an event occurring. They use problems dealing real life scenarios.
Young scholars investigate and define probability. In this statistics instructional activity, students watch a video and describe where probability was used. They relate probability to the real world and describe the relationship and chances of these events happening.
In this statistics worksheet, learners complete 6 problem solving questions regarding spatial probability. Students are then asked to complete 10 word problem questions based on geometric shapes and coin flipping probabilities.
Students explore basic probability. In this Algebra II/Geometry lesson, students use modeling to solve basic probability problems involving real-life applications.
In this probability and statistics worksheet, 9th graders determine the probability of an event occurring and express their answer as a fraction, decimal, and percent. The two page worksheet ten problems. Answers are not provided.
Students identify the chance of an event occurring. In this statistics lesson, students roll a dice and identify the chances of a number occurring. they find fractions of probability and identify the meaning of that outcome.
