Product Description
An introduction to probability statistics, this activity works great for math courses including statistics, finite math, liberal arts math, and even algebra 1 (probability and statistics standards). I have students work in small groups and, while these activities can be completed in a single class period, they are usually used as a culminating activity over two or even four different class meetings.

Students will explore concepts such as:

*the addition rule
*the multiplication rule
*inclusive events
*disjoint (mutually exclusive) events
*complements
*conditional probability
*the gambler's fallacy
*The rare event rule

The four activities allow students to use appropriate manipulatives for studying probability such as decks of cards, six sided dice, coins, even a 20 sided die.
(You can get some great sets of dice from amazon.com that contain 4, 7, 10, 12, and even 20 sides!)

The 2 page activity sheets come in a word file so that you can edit them as you see fit. I have also included the answer key for my activity sheets in .pdf format.

Have Fun! Joseph Huston
