Description

Are you teaching your students all about chance and probability and looking for fun hands-on probability activities? This print and digital (google slides) bundle of probability worksheets will reinforce the understanding of theoretical probability, experimental probability, language of chance, sample space, predictions, lists, tree diagrams, dependent probability events and independent probability events.

Both US and British English spelling and terminology included.

Overview of Activities

1. The Probability Scale; Words Describing Chance:

  • Definitions and given scenarios
  • Chance and Data (language of chance); class surveys

2a. Theoretical Probability: Manipulatives

  • spinner numbers
  • spinner names
  • spinner colors
  • marbles
  • dice numbers
  • playing cards

2b. Theoretical Probability: Tree Diagrams and Grids

  • possible outcomes of two coins using a tree diagram and a grid
  • possible outcomes of a coin and a dice using a tree diagram and a grid
  • possible outcomes of a dice and a spinner using a tree diagram and a grid

3a. Theoretical and Experimental Probability:

  • Rolling a six-sided dice a given number of times.
  • Tossing two coins a given number of times.
  • Spinning a spinner a given number of times.
  • Picking an M&M color a given number of times.

3b. Experimental Probability:

  • Dice roll to find the number of trials and relative frequency of the numbers rolled.

  • Group experiment to toss a coin a given number of times and record the total heads, total tails, total outcomes, and relative frequencies of heads and tails (fractions and decimals) for each group. This is to prove the law of large numbers that indicate that as the number of trials increase, the relative frequencies tend to get closer to the expected value (0.5) of tossing a coin.

4. Word Problems for both theoretical and experimental probability outcomes:

This section features ‘Work with Teacher’ and ‘Student Practice’ pages. The ‘Work

with Teacher’ page will enable you to demonstrate the solution for each problem.

I work on the PDF version of the file on the I-pad. This is projected on the interactive whiteboard (via a VGA cable) as I show annotations and working out of the problems.

The ‘Student Practice’ pages will enable your students to practice the problem-solving strategies modeled by you in the ‘Work with Teacher’ pages. Problems are the same format with only a change in the numbers.

Nature of Problems (sample space, lists, tree diagrams)

  • Picking a favorable outcome from given possible outcomes.
  • Problems pertaining to coin tosses and dice rolls
  • Real-life problem: left-handed, right-handed people
  • Problems involving possible combinations shown via a tree diagram
  • Problems with Spinner spins


5. Independent Probability Events

Determining the Independent Probability of events using:

  • Playing Cards
  • Dice Numbers
  • Coin Tosses
  • M&M's Candy
  • Spinners
  • Word Problems
  • Lists and Tree Diagrams

6. Dependent Probability Events

Determining the Dependent Probability of events using:

  • Playing Cards
  • Visual Images
  • Letter Tiles
  • Marbles
  • M&M's Candy
  • Word Problems

7. Assessment

  • 10 Print and Digital Sheets comprising 61 questions.


Items Included

  • Sheets (Pdf) x 80
  • Sheets Digital (PowerPoint) x 80
  • Sheets Digital (Google Slides) x 80
  • Assessment (print & digital) 61 questions
  • Teacher's Copy for all 7 units - explicit working out key for each problem
  • Cover Sheet (student) For all 7 units - compile all sheets into a booklet, this eliminates the need for students to write their names on each page.

The hands-on interactive activities will also facilitate practical application and enable students to work with the concrete in order to understand the abstract. Moreover, the activities are sure to make the teaching of Theoretical and Experimental probability not just easy but pure fun!

Targeted Group

  • This unit caters to differentiation and best targets students in grades 4-8.
  • Choose each sheet as per the ability levels of your students.

Julie S. said:

NYS has just moved this topic into the 6th grade curriculum, so I needed a good resource to engage my students. This looks like it fits the bill. Thank you.

kellie C. said:

My 7th graders enjoyed being taught probability using games. All students were engaged and wanted more.

Wanda Scott (TpT Seller) said:

This was a thorough and fun way to learn probability and chance. Thank you!

Buyer said:

Excellent clear resource to use.

Mr P. said:

So detailed and comprehensive!

Standards

Recognize a statistical question as one that anticipates variability in the data related to the question and accounts for it in the answers. For example, “How old am I?” is not a statistical question, but “How old are the students in my school?” is a statistical question because one anticipates variability in students’ ages.
Summarize numerical data sets in relation to their context, such as by:
Reporting the number of observations.
Describing the nature of the attribute under investigation, including how it was measured and its units of measurement.
Understand that the probability of a chance event is a number between 0 and 1 that expresses the likelihood of the event occurring. Larger numbers indicate greater likelihood. A probability near 0 indicates an unlikely event, a probability around 1/2 indicates an event that is neither unlikely nor likely, and a probability near 1 indicates a likely event.
