The problems and activities within this document are designed to assist students in achieving the following standards: 6.SP.B.5, 7.SP.C, HSS.CP.A.2, HSS.CP.A.3, HSS.CP.B.7, HSS.CP.B.9, as well as the standards for mathematics practice and the literacy standards. They are also designed to help the teacher assess the students’ abilities when it comes to working with the ideas within the standards.
This document contains the following:
A project designed to allow students to investigate theoretical probabilities in baseball, and compare those probabilities to what actually happens in the game. Descriptions of necessary baseball terms are included. Students are also required to research the statistics on their own, and calculate the probabilities of various events that may occur in baseball. Students are also asked to reflect upon their work within the project.
This project can be modified for middle school or high school, but I designed it for use in high school.
*Of course, you can rearrange the problems in this document for use as class work, homework, quizzes, tests, etc. as you wish!
About my Products:
While the PARCC assesses many of the mathematical practice standards, I aim to create many problems and activities that require students to apply the skills outlined in the performance level descriptors. I believe that the more students are exposed to such types of work, the more likely they are to develop a conceptual understanding of the concepts & of their own learning, succeed on the PARCC, and hence the more likely they are to be prepared for success in college and/or their future careers. If you happen to have any questions or concerns regarding anything your purchase (or download for free), please do not hesitate to contact me! Have a wonderful school year! :)
