This card sort activity will have your students practicing probability and determining outcomes. Students will classify each of the 20 events and sort them into 5 categories of probability – impossible, less likely, even odds (50% chance), more likely, and certain – based on their likelihood of outcome.

Save 25% with the money saving bundle on probability.

Great for an interactive notebook, students can fold up the sorting pockets and place the cards into the correct pocket. After the activity is over, pass out the answer cards and have students check their work. Students can then keep these answer cards in the back of their pockets for further review and practice later on.

An alternative sorting mat is also included if you wish to use it instead of the pockets. Students simply lay the cards out on the mat according to the category they have chosen. You can even laminate the cards and mats and use them in a learning station year after year.

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. For example, when rolling a number cube 600 times, predict that a 3 or 6 would be rolled roughly 200 times, but probably not exactly 200 times.
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. A probability near 0 indicates an unlikely event, a probability around 1/2 indicates an event that is neither unlikely nor likely, and a probability near 1 indicates a likely event.
