PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This 12 minute narrated, animated PowerPoint presentation makes learning the difference between theoretical probability and experimental or empirical probability fun for students. It is intended for 7th, 8th, or 9th grade Algebra classes. It reviews a few Key terms such as probability, event, sample space, etc. and then concentrates on the famous probability birthday problem or paradox in which given a group of 50 people, 97% will share the same birthday.

Three student handouts are included, which includes a list of 140 popular actresses and actors and their birthdays. Teacher instructions are also included. This PowerPoint would work well in a Summer School program or used by a Substitute teacher (as long as the handouts and directions were also provided).

I hope your class enjoys the presentation. Please stop back weekly for more Printables and PowerPoint presentations.
Sincerely,
Karen Nath
