Games for Probability: In-Class and Powerball Simulation

Your soon-to-be statisticians play a game to understand the difference between independent and dependent experiments and probability. They draw colored cubes from a bag and then, by either replacing the cube in the bag, or not, for each subsequent draw, calculate the relevant probability. They reflect on lottery Powerball games and execute a simulation, either on graphing calculators or an online program (link provided). Reproducible worksheet and homework included.

Lesson Planet has allowed me to build on many lessons that I have done in the past. It's always nice to see how other educators are teaching a concept.
