This chance and data spinner experiment is a fun and hands on way to consolidate your students knowledge of probability. It is perfect to use at the end of a unit on Chance and Data or to test your students understanding of chance and the likelihood of an event occurring.
Students get to make a series of spinners, make predictions and list the outcomes of their own chance experiment involving equally likely or unlikely outcomes. Students will interpret and compare a range of data by constructing column graphs and conversing with fellow class members.
There are two different levels of difficulty. Spinner Scrutiny I an easier version or Spinner Scrutiny II that can be used for higher grades or as extension work – it has extra prediction work and conversion of probability results using fractions, decimals and percentages.
No preparation needed, just print it out and you are ready to go.

* Spinner Scrutiny Experiment Handouts for students, ready to print and go. These come in two different levels. An easier version and a harder version.
