Product Description
This is a great class activity to reinforce frequency and relative frequency tables.
*I copy this assignment front/back.

1. Divide the class into pairs. *I prefer pairs in this activity because one person flips and the other writes down the data. This way, no one is just sitting there :).

2. Pass out the worksheet and a bag with a penny, nickle, dime, and a quarter. I remind students that I am going to be wanting that money back..haha.

3. I go through the instructions and explain that they will only be filling out one side of their worksheet, and that we will do the "Putting it Together" page as a whole class. After each group has completed the activity, put the "Putting it Together Whole Class Data" page on the document camera. I have each pair share their data and we create a class total. I ask for "Penny Heads" then "Penny Tails," then add those two together. I proceed through all the coins. **I have ALL my students take out a calculator and add up as we go so we can "check" to make sure it is accurate. I also have them fill out that side with me.

4. I have EACH PAIR figure out the relative frequency percentages on their own. When everyone is done we share out that data and I fill it in.

5. Finally, we discuss the similarities and differences between the whole class data and the data they took in pairs.
