Product Description
Students will travel through five stations to reinforce the difference between experimental and theoretical probabilities. The five stations are as follows:
1. Deck of Cards
2. Flipping Two Coins
3. Drawing Candies from a Bag
4. Spinner
5. Rolling a Pair of Dice

At Station 1, students determine the theoretical probability of drawing various cards, card types, and card combinations from the deck. At Station 2, students determine the theoretical probability of all possible outcomes that can come from flipping two coins. At Station 3, students determine the theoretical probability of choosing various Starburst candies from a bag. At Station 4, students determine the theoretical probability of landing on various colored wedges of a spinner. At Station 5, students determine the theoretical probability of rolling sums between 0-12 with two dice.

At the end of each station students will conduct the experiment. Each station designates the number of times students should draw, flip, spin, or roll. Before they conduct the experiment, students explore the expected number of outcomes for each experiment. Finally, students will compare their predictions to what actually occurred during their experiment.
