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 become an incredible asset to my teaching. The lessons I have found are well thought out, simple to follow and full of some very creative ideas. I refer to this website quite often and will continue to do so.
