Instructional Ideas

  • Consider having the class perform the final activity as a mock end-of-course question, then use the rubric and exemplars to self- or partner-grade their responses
  • Divide the class into pairs and have them devise their own number cube sets and predict the outcomes for their creation
  • Great activities and problem sets to break up as review problems in the weeks after a probability unit has finished, or use as substitute lesson plans
Classroom Considerations

  • If colored pencils are used for the activities, considerations such as labeling colors might be necessary for visually impaired or colorblind pupils
  • Color copies or labeling of the main activity are necessary to preserve the blue and pink on the number cube examples
  • If accommodations for ESL or SPED students are required, several scaffolds and supports are available in the resources section of the unit
Pros

  • Clearly explained rubric and graded exemplars provided for main performance task
  • Extensive supports and teaching notes for all activities, including common sticking points and strategies for overcoming them
  • Thoroughly labeled and detailed answer keys for all activities
Cons

  • Apparent links in the Resources section on page 24 aren't actually hyperlinked to any websites
