PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

PROBABILITY Word Problems - Task Cards

Use these 40 task cards with your students to help them practice solving real-word PROBABILITY word problems.

What is Included:
This resource includes 40 task cards, a student answer sheet, and an answer key. Your students will love working with these task cards.


How to Use:
I place one task card on each of my students desks and give them 2-3 minutes to complete the problem and record their answer on their answer sheet. Once time is up I have my students "scoot" to the next desk to solve the new problem. The students LOVE doing this activity because it gets them moving. I highly recommend printing these task cards and answer key on card stock. Laminate them if possible so that they can be used for years. These task cards are perfect for reinforcing concepts through individual student practice, pair-share, early finishers, and assessment prep.


Topics covered:
✔ probability of simple events
✔ theoretical and experimental probability
✔ probability of compound events
✔ simulations
✔ Fundamental Counting Principal
✔ permutations
✔ independent and dependent events


This resource is also included in my PROBABILITY UNIT RESOURCE BUNDLE!


Common Core Aligned:
* 7.SP.5- Understand that the probability of a chance event is a number between 0 and 1 that expresses the likelihood of the event occurring. Larger numbers indicate greater likelihood.
* 7.SP.6 - Approximate the probability of a chance event by collecting data on the chance process that produces it and observing its long-run relative frequency, and predict the approximate relative frequency given the probability.
* 7.SP.7 - Develop a probability model and use it to find probabilities of events. Compare probabilities from a model to observed frequencies;
* 7.SP.8 - Find probabilities of compound events using organized lists, tables, tree diagrams, and simulation.


Feedback on this Resource:
♥ The cards offered different levels of rigor. Students were challenged to think through several of these task cards.
♥ I really liked this and the students were able to work through the problems on their own.
♥ Love this! It is hard to find great Probability reviews so this was fantastic!
