Probability Explorations

6-8
Data Analysis and Probability

Pasco, WA

Students will explore theoretical and experimental probability and the relationship between them. Students will also graph an experiment to further explore the relationship according to the Law of Large Numbers.

What Are My Chances?

6-8
Students will conduct five experiments through stations to compare theoretical and experimental probability. The class data will be combined to compare with previously established theoretical probability.

Probably Graphing

6-8
Student will conduct a coin tossing experiment for 30 trials.  Their results will be graphed and shows a line graph that progresses toward the theoretical probability.  The graph will also allow for a representation of heads or tails throughout the experiment.
