Product Description
Three fun station activities for learning about theoretical and experimental probability and the Law of Large Numbers.
1) Spinning a spinner
2) Playing "Rock, Paper, Scissors"
3) Rolling a pair of dice

This resource includes:
- a printable overview of probability vocabulary and notation
- pre- and post-activity questions
- data collection sheets
- a summative quiz
- ALL answer keys

Each activity is designed for small groups (ideally 3 students) who will first determine the theoretical probability of events. They conduct the experimental task three times, increasing the number of trials each time. Results lead to the recognition that theoretical probability is better approximated with greater numbers of trials - the Law of Large Numbers.

Students will think they're playing while they're learning and demonstrating experimental and theoretical probability.
