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.
What's the Chance Activity Page
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.
