Odd or Even? The Addition and Complement Principles of Probability
Odd or even—fifty-fifty chance? �Pupils first conduct an experiment rolling a pair of dice to generate data in a probability lesson. It goes on to introduce mutually exclusive and non-mutually exclusive events, and how to use the...

Theoretical Probability Activity
If you keep rolling a die, you'll roll a five exactly one-sixth of the time—right? A probability lesson prompts young mathematicians to roll a die 100 times and use the data to calculate empirical probabilities. They then compare these...

Probability Lab - Experimental versus Expected Values
Students compare experimental probability results with expected theoretical values. They study basic probability expected values for the flip of a fair coin and the roll of a fair die. They accumulate experimental data based on...
