20 questions for simple probability including theoretical and experimental probability are used.

I copy my student booklets back to back to save paper. I group students into trios but you can do partners or even larger groups. You can let groups decide on group names if you wish! I write them on the board. I set a timer for an allotted amount of time- YouTube has really cute timers. Students solve questions in any order they wish. They raise their hands when they have an answer & I come check to see if it is right. If it is I check it off on their paper. This is how they earn points. When the timer goes off they add up their points. Then they can see how many hoops they have earned. Once they know this information, they can decide which group members wants to shoot hoops/how many each member can do. Then one group at a time is called to shoot the ball. (I got my goal at a local sports store but you can even use a trash can/paper!) I have a student tally mark each goal made by the team. The overall winning team gets candy in my room. (:

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.
