Instructional Ideas

  • Challenge class members to convert fractional probabilities into percents
  • Create an experimental probability situation that allows class members to compare the results from one of the worksheets (theoretical probability) to a real trial of pulling candy out of a bag
Classroom Considerations

  • The resource contains theoretical probability type problems versus experimental probability
  • Students should have background knowledge and experience working with fractions and finding probabilities and ratios
  • Consider numbering each question before copying a class set, and provide scrap paper for those that need it

  • Comes with 10 different versions and their corresponding answer keys

  • The questions are not numbered
