Title: What's the Chance?
Description:

In this lesson, students will use an online spinner to explore theoretical and experimental probabilities. Students will also make predictions and support their reasoning before completing a probability experiment. Then students will design a spinner where all the sections are not uniform. To be able to compare results, the only variable changed is the size of the sections. Students will express probability results in both percent and fraction forms. Finally, students will reflect on a simulation of a given event.

Title: And the Winner Is...
Description:

In this activity, the students will visit the website, Probability Fair, to reinforce a lesson on finding simple probability or chance. The students will demonstrate their knowledge of finding probability to acquire the most tickets in the class.

This activity results from the ALEX Resource GAP Project.

Title: Grade 7 Mathematics Module 5, Topic A: Calculating and Interpreting Probabilities
Description:

In Module 5, Topics A and B, students learn to interpret the probability of an event as the proportion of the time that the event will occur when a chance experiment is repeated many times (7.SP.C.5). They learn to compute or estimate probabilities using a variety of methods, including collecting data, using tree diagrams, and using simulations.

Title: Grade 7 Mathematics Module 5, Topic B: Estimating Probabilities
Description:

In Module 5, Topic B, students move to compare probabilities from simulations to computed probabilities that are based on theoretical models (7.SP.C.6, 7.SP.C.7). They calculate probabilities of compound events using lists, tables, tree diagrams, and simulations (7.SP.C.8). They learn to use probabilities to make decisions and to determine whether or not a given probability model is plausible (7.SP.C.7). The Mid-Module Assessment follows Topic B.
