Exploring Geometric Probabilities with Buffon’s Coin Problem
6th - 8th CCSS: Designed
New ReviewScholars create and perform experiments attempting to answer Buffon's Coin problem. They discover the relationships between geometry and probability, empirical and theoretical probabilities, and area of a circle and square.
Probability of Not Happening
4 mins 6th - 12th CCSS: Adaptable
New ReviewYou'll want to make sure the lesson actually happens. Young mathematicians watch a video to learn about the probability of an event not happening. They see how subtracting the probability of the event happening from one gives the...
Probability: Independent Events
7 mins 6th - 12th CCSS: Adaptable
New ReviewEquip learners to work independently on probability in no time. A short video describes methods for determining the probability of independent events. It includes examples where the order of events is important and must be taken into...
9 mins 6th - 12th CCSS: Adaptable
New ReviewScholars' knowledge of probability depends on whether they watch the useful video. Young mathematicians view a short video to learn about the probability of dependent events. The narrator works through several examples to ensure viewers...
Probability and Relative Frequency
7th - 12th CCSS: Adaptable
It's all relatively simple once you get the gist. Young mathematicians learn about sample spaces and simple probability by conducting an activity with dice. To complete the second of six parts in the Statistics and Probability unit, they...
Independent and Dependent Events
11 mins 9th - 12th CCSS: Adaptable
Some learners are independent, while others are dependent on lessons like these! An instructional video discusses the difference between independent and dependent events when calculating a probability. The lesson begins with vocabulary...
