The "Grade 4: Probability” activity packet is aligned with the Ontario Mathematic expectations. The specific expectations this packet addresses for your reference are as follows:
- Predict the frequency of an outcome in a simple probability experiment, explaining their reasoning; conduct the experiment; and compare the result with the prediction;
- Determine, through investigation, how the number of repetitions of a probability experiment can affect the conclusions drawn;
This packet is designed to be a supplementary activity packet. Feel free to add your own lessons and activities to this packet or pick and choose which activities from this packet you would like to incorporate into your unit.
Students are given plenty of practical probability experiments using paper and pencils, that they can complete using the following tools:
Coins (heads, tails);
Paper clips (for spinners);
