Jelly Bean Probability Experiment
Product Description
Students will use jelly beans and a brown bag to create their own jelly bean experiment. Students are asked to create their sample space by picking jelly beans. Students will find the possible outcomes by calculating the probability of choosing each color. This is their theoretical probability. They will write the probability as a fraction.

Students are asked to perform an experiment by actually picking the jelly beans out of the bag. They calculate the experimental probability of their own experiment. Students then compare the results of their theoretical probability and the experimental probability and discuss the differences.

Following the lesson, there is an "exit slip" or check skills section that allows teachers to assess student comprehension.
