### PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Develop the skill of critical reasoning in your students with the teaching of this 73 page unit on Chance and Probability. Research shows that students build their knowledge in an active way, by solving problems and interacting with their classmates, the unit comprises of 124 task cards that adopt a similar approach and scaffold learning of this challenging yet fun topic.

ITEMS INCLUDED
124 Task Cards to reinforce key concepts.
* THE PROBABILITY SCALE: 20 Task Cards that require students to rate the likelihood of an event happening on a scale denoting ‘Impossible, Unlikely, Even Chance, Likely, and Certain’.

* RELATING FRACTIONS TO LIKELIHOOD WITH DICE: 20 task cards targeting probability problems involving 1-2 dice.

* RELATING FRACTIONS TO LIKELIHOOD WITH SPINNERS: 20 task cards featuring probability problems with a colored spinner.

* RELATING FRACTIONS TO LIKELIHOOD WITH PLAYING CARDS: 20 task cards featuring probability problems with visual playing cards.

* RELATING FRACTIONS TO LIKELIHOOD WITH GLITTER CLIPS: 20 task cards featuring probability problems with colored glitter clips.

* CHANCE AND PROBABILITY MIXED PROBLEMS: 24 task cards targeting mixed problems relating to Theoretical and Experimental probability, grids, and Tree Diagrams.

SUGGESTED USE
The activities are fairly simple, yet challenging and scaffold acquisition of key skills, especially finding all possible outcomes using Grids and Tree Diagrams. The task cards may be placed in math centers and used to further build and practice skills. They range in complexity and thus cater to differentiation. Needless to say, they are ideal for your early finishers.

** I generally place each of the 6 task card activities in file folders. The cover (included) for each file folder is pasted on the front and clearly indicates the activity with a snapshot of the task cards featured. Task cards are placed inside the folder in a zip lock bag with copies of the Response Sheet. The answer sheet is placed in a large envelope inside the folder so students can check their answers when they finish the activity.

TARGETED GROUP
This unit best targets students in grades 3-6, although a portion of it can also be used for higher achievers at Grade 2. It would also be useful to students at Grades 7-8 who would benefit from a strong basic foundation knowledge of Chance and Probability via user friendly activities.

ALSO INCLUDED
* Response Sheets for Task Card Activity.
* 18 colorful and meaningful vocabulary cards that may be displayed on the bulletin board after introduction. Blank cards template also provided.
* Center Checklist for Task Card Activities.
