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...

Investigation: Gas Laws in Action - Propane
Using helium as an example of propane, physical science middle schoolers experiment with and graph the relationship between temperature and volume in gases. In a whole-class demonstration, they show how molecules behave under different...

The Law of Large Numbers and Probability
Learners investigate why theoretical probability doesn't always match reality. The activity involves using Python 2.7 (or Sage) to set up a Bernoulli Trial. It also involves setting up a spreadsheet to simulate the Birthday Paradox....

Understand the Law of Large Numbers by Comparing Experimental Results to the Theoretical Probability
If we flip four tails in a row, does that mean all coin flips will be tails? With the law of large numbers, your mathematicians will learn that with more trials their experimental probability will get closer to the theoretical...
