Probability of Simple Events in a PowerPoint Presentation
This slideshow lesson is very animated with a flow-through technique. It was made for my Algebra 1 class, but can be used for lower grades as well. This lesson teaches how to find the probability of simple events and identify whether the probabiliy of an event is likely, unlikely or equally likely.
The presentation has 45 slides with lots of whiteboard practice. Use as many or as few of the problems to help your students learn each concept. For more PowerPoint lessons & materials visit:
Students often get lost in multi-step math problems. This PowerPoint lesson is unique because it uses a flow-through technique that helps to eliminate confusion and guide the student through the problem. The lesson highlights each step of the problem as the teacher is discussing it, and then animates it to the next step within the lesson. Every step of every problem is shown, even the minor or seemingly insignificant steps. A helpful color-coding technique engages the students and guides them through the problem. Twice as many examples are provided, compared to a standard textbook. All lessons have a real-world example to aid the students in visualizing a practical application of the concept.
This lesson applies to the Common Core Standard:
Expressions and Equations 7.SP
Investigate chance processes and develop, use, and evaluate probability models.
5. Understand that the probability of a chance event is a number between 0 and 1 that expresses the likelihood of the event occurring. Larger numbers indicate greater likelihood. A probability near 0 indicates an unlikely event, a probability around 1/2 indicates an event that is neither unlikely nor likely, and a probability near 1 indicates a likely event.
Please note that these PowerPoints are NOT EDITABLE. They WILL NOT work with Google Slides. You will need the PowerPoint software.
If you need an alternative version because your country uses different measurements, units, slight wording adjustment for language differences, or a slide reordering just ask.
