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...

Activity: An Experiment with Dice
Roll the dice with this activity and teach young mathematicians about probability. Record outcomes for rolling two number cubes in order to determine what is most likely to happen. Graph the data and investigate patterns in the results,...

Find the Probability of Events with Multiple Possibilities
Your learners can find a probability, but what happens when there are multiple possibilities? This video introduces the idea of combining probabilities when there are different choices for the outcome. The examples focus on finding the...
