This lesson has two simulation activities that could be used for 6th-8th grade but it is geared towards the 8th grade common core standards.
Students will explore how to conduct the simulation of an event that is not practical to conduct in a real-life situation. Students will use a paper bag filled with the correct number of colored manipulatives to conduct the simulation.
Both activities are events where students conduct a simulation of pulling socks from a drawer of a dark room. Below I will provide the theoretical calculation for both activities.
