My students love math activities that involve them moving around the classroom. A scavenger hunt is one of those activities. I teach the dependent and independent probability lesson after a compound probability lesson. The students pick up on what to do fairly quickly so I have them complete this activity for the rest of class. The problems are evenly split between dependent probability problems and independent probability problems. (6 of each type of problem.)
An easy prep activity, all you need to do is print, cut, and hang the scavenger cards around your room and print a student answer sheet for each student. I hand each student a student answer sheet and instruct them to spread out amongst the cards. (The nice thing with this activity is that students can start on any card which makes congestion less of an issue.) Once they get to a card, the students solve that problem and then look for their answer on the top right corner of another card. Once they arrive at the correct card, they repeat this process. I tell students to check their order with me once they have completed every card.
Another way to use this activity independently is to print off all the cards, but keep them together. Give the stack to one student, a pair, or a group. They need to solve each problem and place the cards in the correct order. If your class struggles with activities that takes them around the room, this may work better for your students.
