Product Description
This Skittles Lab is a fun and engaging way to get students excited about finding probabilities. The experiment involves finding the theoretical and experimental probability of choosing a specific order of skittles from a bag. Students work best in groups of three to calculate their probabilities and reflect on their results. This extends what students learned about Single Event Probabilities and now involves a Compound Event. There are step-by-step instructions for students to follow through out the entire lesson. Not only do students work diligently to complete the lab, they will be excited to eat their skittles after their work is done! Have FUN!!!
