This activity was created for middle school math stations on propbability and statistics. As students rotate through stations, they can be challenged in individual, partner, and group activities and games. This is an individual practice station. Here, students work independently on a guided problem solving activity. It requires students to answer two questions using simulation and spinners. I laminate the included student directions to keep at the station.

Find probabilities of compound events using organized lists, tables, tree diagrams, and simulation.
Understand that, just as with simple events, the probability of a compound event is the fraction of outcomes in the sample space for which the compound event occurs.
Design and use a simulation to generate frequencies for compound events. For example, use random digits as a simulation tool to approximate the answer to the question: If 40% of donors have type A blood, what is the probability that it will take at least 4 donors to find one with type A blood?
