Using Tree Diagrams to Represent a Sample Space and to Calculate Probabilities
Cultivate the tree of knowledge using diagrams with two stages. Pupils create small tree diagrams to determine the sample space in compound probability problems. The lesson uses only two decision points to introduce tree diagrams.

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,...

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...
