Product Description

I started using choice boards last year and LOVE them! I never gave my students the opportunity to be creative in my classroom. For years, it was notes, homework, and repeat until the test. These choice boards give students the ability to express themselves within their particular learning style. I have been so impressed with the results I get from my students.

This choice board focuses on Simple Events. Also included in this file are mini posters that describe each option on the choice board. I put these on a bulletin board that hangs all year, as we do a number of choice boards. You can also show them on a projector when introducing the choice board to your class. I like to distribute the choice boards at the beginning of the unit and give them a due date around the test.

When my students did their first choice board, I gave them a period in class to work on it. Following choice boards were completed entirely on their own time. I have also created and included a general rubric that you can use for any choice board item. To differentiate, I occasionally allow lower level students to complete two choices (I will cross out a row). The other option for differentiation is to reduce the number required for a particular choice. For example, have a student create two story problems rather than four. I also give students extra credit for any choices that they complete beyond the minimum.

I have created 14 choice boards for 7th grade common core math covering the following topics:

Unit 1: Complex Rates

Unit 2: Proportional Relationships

Unit 3: Proportions & Percents

Unit 4: Adding & Subtracting Rational Numbers

Unit 5: Multiplying & Dividing Rational Numbers

Unit 6: Expressions

Unit 7: Equations and Inequalities

Unit 8: Probability of Simple Events

Unit 9: Probability of Compound Events

Unit 10: Statistics

Unit 11: 2-D Geometry

Unit 12: 3-D Geometry

Unit 13: Scale Drawings

Unit 14: Geometric Constructions

Common Core:

Statistics and Probability — 7.SP

C. Investigate chance processes and develop, use, and evaluate probability models.

5. 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.

6. Approximate the probability of a chance event by collecting data on the chance process that produces it and observing its long-run relative frequency, and predict the approximate relative frequency given the probability. For example, when rolling a number cube 600 times, predict that a 3 or 6 would be rolled roughly 200 times, but probably not exactly 200 times.

7. Develop a probability model and use it to find probabilities of events. Compare probabilities from a model to observed frequencies; if the agreement is not good, explain possible sources of the discrepancy.

a. Develop a uniform probability model by assigning equal probability to all outcomes, and use the model to determine probabilities of events. For example, if a student is selected at random from a class, find the probability that Jane will be selected and the probability that a girl will be selected.
