This low-prep activity is an engaging way for students to practice working with probability, sample spaces, and simple & compound events! (Digital & Printable Versions) Students become suspects after a hotel staff member is murdered. The murderer left a cluesheet and students must work together, solving the probability cluesheet to figure out who the murderer is!

Students are given character cards when they enter the room and assume the role of a hotel guest. Their relaxing stay at the hotel is interrupted when a hotel staff member is found dead. They must work through the clue/worksheet to clear their own name and figure out who among them is the murderer!

The digital version of this activity is created in Google Slides and includes a full set of instructions for students and teachers.

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Understand that, just as with simple events, the probability of a compound event is the fraction of outcomes in the sample space for which the compound event occurs.
Find probabilities of compound events using organized lists, tables, tree diagrams, and simulation.
Develop a probability model (which may not be uniform) by observing frequencies in data generated from a chance process. For example, find the approximate probability that a spinning penny will land heads up or that a tossed paper cup will land open-end down. Do the outcomes for the spinning penny appear to be equally likely based on the observed frequencies?
Develop a uniform probability model by assigning equal probability to all outcomes, and use the model to determine probabilities of events. For example, if a student is selected at random from a class, find the probability that Jane will be selected and the probability that a girl will be selected.
Use data from a random sample to draw inferences about a population with an unknown characteristic of interest. Generate multiple samples (or simulated samples) of the same size to gauge the variation in estimates or predictions. For example, estimate the mean word length in a book by randomly sampling words from the book; predict the winner of a school election based on randomly sampled survey data. Gauge how far off the estimate or prediction might be.
