Probability Games and Activities, Unit 6

Get your mathematicians thinking about probability with these three activity ideas using tangible math. First, middle schoolers use dice to play a simple game, determining how many "odds" and "evens" they need to win. Next, they consider possibly outcomes when typing blades of grass together. Finally, they discover the probability that two people in their class have the same birthday. All activities have several questions to guide students, as well as interesting extensions.

For those topics that are not covered fully in the student textbook, Lesson Planet is a fantastic tool to find materials to complement the text and provide both additional instruction and reinforcement to the learning process.
