PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

In this activity, students practice finding relative frequency (experimental probability) and theoretical probability using different types of manipulatives.**

Students record data and answer questions after doing the following:

Station 1: Spinning a spinner and flipping a coin
Station 2: Spinning a spinner and rolling a die
Station 3: Spinning two different spinners
Station 4: Tossing a small object (coin, die, cube) at a game board (similar to a dart board).
Station 5: Creating a game board similar to station 4
Station 6: Creating a game by choosing any two objects

The stations can take 1-2 days, depending on your time.

They did take a little time to set up. I laminated all of the spinners (using a pencil and paperclip for the spinner) and the direction cards. Then I used small baskets to get them ready ahead of time.

I've included a list of materials for each station, as well as clear directions for the students to make it a little easier.

**The spinners, game board, directions, and recording sheets are included. Additional items that are needed are:

coins
dice
paperclips (for spinners)
