Students define probability. They determine outcome from a given situation based on simple probability. Students create experimental data using a coin and a number cube. They write how theoretical and experimental probability are different.

New Review Probability and Statistics
MAD about statistics? In the seventh chapter of an eight-part seventh grade workbook series, learners develop probability models and use statistics to draw inferences. In addition, learners play games and conduct experiments to determine...

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...
