This resource is a set of 18 probability task cards differentiated by level of difficulty. Each task card has a shape to indicate itself level of difficulty, a probability problem and a diagram to go along with it.
Included are 2 files. One of the files is full size task cards so that you can print however you may like. The other file has 4 to a page of each card. I like to print my task cards because with two quick slices of my paper cutter I have 4 full decks assembled!
Ideas of Use:
Individually - Have students work at the level they feel comfortable at or assign a level to each student.
Stations - Split the task cards by level. Create three stations in the classroom, one for each level, and have students work at their assigned station or rotate through all three stations. Give the level four problem as an extension for students who need a challenge or finish early.
Whole Class - Use the task cards for a jeopardy style game. Have students take turns choose if they want to attempt a 100, 200 or 300 point question. Project a task card of the requested level using a document camera or projector and have students write their answers on white boards and hold them up. Award points to every person (or group) with the correct answer. The challenge problem would make a great "final jeopardy" type question!
