Probability - What Are the Odds?

Students study the concept of probability. In this probability lesson plan, students define probability and visit an interactive spinner website to learn about theoretical and experimental probability. Students use pennies and work in pairs to complete a tossing probability game. Students research careers of interest and present a technology based presentation about probability. Students work in cooperative groups to develop a career recruitment video for their occupation.

Being a first year foreign language teacher came with many trials. However, having Lesson Planet has made my job so much easier :). I can always find a few lessons on any given concept I am introducing to my students. The neatest thing is the agility of use the site provides and the search for lessons by grade. I love that! (Especially since I teach 4th - 8th graders.) I need a variety of lessons that meets my students' needs at their level.
