I made this activity to serve as a fun way for students to apply what they learned in the probability unit. Students rotate through 6 hands-on stations where they calculate mathematical probabilities, complete experiments, and then calculate the resulting experimental probabilities. The stations use basic materials that should be found within your classroom or school, like dice, coins, spinners, etc.
The activity requires a knowledge of mathematical probability and experimental probability for both single and compound events, including independent and dependent events. Additionally, it assumes that students have learned to create tree diagrams for compound events to help show all possible outcomes. Lastly, students should know how to predict future outcomes based on current results using equivalent fractions.
Completion of these stations will require at least a full class period, if not two.
