Investigation - What's in the Bag?

If you have or can create a set of tiles, numbered one through eight, then you can implement this hands-on lesson about probability models. Individuals draw a tile from a bag, record its number, and then return it to the bag. They predict the probability of the product of three draws equalling an odd number. Teach them how to use sample spaces and tree diagrams to do so. The notes for the lesson are fairly simple, but include two assessment questions and an extension suggestion.

Your site is extremely easy to maneuver, and your search engine sorts beautifully--down to the grade level and super-specific subject matter. As a graduate student, studying for my teacher's license, I've found great, creative inspiration in the content links on your site. I count on your site more than any other I've found to date.
