Product Description
Directions:
1. Read each carnival game scenario carefully.
2. Calculate the theoretical probability of winning each game.
3. Simulate the game using the attached spinner.
4. Record the answers to questions A, B, and C on the same sheet.

8.11b Use theoretical probabilities and experimental results to make predictions and decision
Example:
A.Theoretical: If a dart is thrown at random, calculate the probability of winning a prize.
B.Prediction: If a person were to play this game a total of 60 times, how many times would they be expected to win?
Experimental: Create a spinner and simulate this game. Spin and record your spin each time, assuming each time you start with a full board. Keep spinning until you land on yellow.
C. Use the results of your simulation to calculate the experimental probability of winning the Balloon Pop game.
