Making Predictions: Problem-Solving Applications
Get your mathematicians making predictions with this movie-genre opinion poll instructional activity! Students begin by filling in the hypothetical results of an 80-person survey, tallying favorite movie genre responses between 5 categories. After switching papers with a classmate, students predict results of a larger poll, based on the outcome of their classmates' poll. Finally, they explain why their prediction may or may not be exact. Consider actually polling the class for results!
