PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Probability Spinners: Use Real World Data to Make Future Predictions

This is a probability activity I have used with my sixth graders. They really enjoy it because it's connected to the real world. I have my students work in groups, but you could have students do the work independently.

Students use data on sea lion patients from a Marine Rescue Center. They record the fraction, decimal and the correlating percents of reoccurring characteristics of the patients. Next, they create spinners finding the degrees of a circle needed for their data to represent the probability of characteristics. Finally, they use their spinners to predict characteristics of future sea lion patients.

I use this as an extension activity or an end of unit activity after my students have learned how to do probability problems with fractions, decimals, and percents.

Included:
1. Easy to follow directions for students.
2. Sea Lion Patient Data List
3. Recording Sheets for Students
5. Answer Key

It's a 27 page file, but 10 pages are the answer key.
