This is a unit project to go along with compound probability. Students in class will make a carnival game that involves compound probability. I,e. roll a dice and toss a coin, choose a card and pick an animal, etc. Students will design their game, make their game, calculate the probability of winning their game, test their game, etc. all on a project packet. Students will need some time in class designing their game boards, etc.
On carnival day, we invited other classes to come in and play our games. As other students came in, they received 5 tickets and got to "spend" them on whichever games they chose. If they won a game, they were rewarded additional tickets. Students LOVE this project! Having other classes come to the carnival is a great way for students to show off their hard work. All documents are Word docs so they can be modified to fit your needs.
Project packet, project reflection, and grading rubric are all included.
