This probability anticipation guide contains a list of statements related to introductory probability concepts. Students are required to indicate whether they believe each statement is true or false before the topic is studied and again after the lesson. Besides activating students’ prior knowledge of probability, this anticipation guide enhances comprehension and builds interest in the lesson. As the Do Now for this lesson, the students will respond to the statements in the “before the lesson” section. As the Exit Ticket after the lesson, students will respond to the true and false statements again. This anticipation guide will serve as a formative assessment since you will be able to see how much students learned and whether or not their misconceptions were corrected.

Common Core Standards: 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. 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.
